Our groundbreaking original research seeks to understand the causes of gun violence in order to develop evidence-based solutions to America's gun violence crisis.

Every day, more than 100 people in the United States are killed with guns and 200 more are shot and wounded. The gun homicide rate in the U.S. is 25 times higher than that of other developed countries. Data and research shows that common-sense public safety laws can reduce gun violence and save lives.
