Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence maintains a library of resources that support the proven solutions to the epidemic of gun violence our nation faces. Our legal experts research and publish new reports examining the opportunities lawmakers have to help reduce the toll deadly weapons have on our daily lives. We also work in partnership with other nonprofits and advocacy groups to develop and promote the strategies that save lives and protect our communities from tragedy.

The below publications represent a snapshot of the content our attorneys create. To partner with us, and help put these ideas into action in your state, contact our attorneys through our request assistance form.
