Educating lawmakers and the public on the scope of the gun violence epidemic, the ins and outs of existing gun laws, and the proven solutions to this uniquely American crisis is critical to Giffords Law Center’s mission to save lives.
Our legal experts track and analyze every piece of gun legislation presented in every state, every year, and have unmatched insight into what works, what doesn’t, and what’s trending among both gun violence prevention advocates and the gun-industry backed lobbyists seeking to profit at the expense of public safety.
While more comprehensive resources can be found on our policy pages and in our extensive collection of reports, toolkits, and publications, our attorneys have distilled critical information about America’s firearms laws and the most effective solutions to gun violence into a suite of printer-friendly factsheets.
