Disarm Hate: the Deadly Intersection of Guns and Hate Crimes

Approximately 8,000 hate crimes a year involve a firearm—more than 20 each day. And reports indicate that hate crimes are on the rise. But in most of the United States, there is no law prohibiting people convicted of violent hate crimes from having guns.

Guns on Campus

The gun lobby has made it a priority in recent years to pass laws that would allow guns on campuses across the country, even as the major stakeholders — from students and college presidents to school faculty — have resisted this legislative push.

Extreme Risk Laws

When a person is in crisis and considering harming themselves or others, family members and law enforcement are often the first people to see the warning signs. Extreme Risk laws empower those who recognize these warning signs to intervene in order to prevent people in crisis from accessing firearms. These laws can help de-escalate emergency situations and are a proven way to intervene before a firearm suicide or mass shooting takes more American lives. States around the country are turning to Extreme Risk laws as a common-sense way to help reduce gun violence.
