Thank you to all our members and supporters for making 2014 a banner year for the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence!
We were able to do more in 2014 than ever before, including tracking and analyzing 1600 firearms bills and 102 Second Amendment cases. We wrote the model law Washington State used as a guide for its historic background checks ballot initiative, worked with legislators to pass California’s landmark Gun Violence Restraining Order law, connected communities under attack from the gun lobby with pro bono legal support, filed eight amicus briefs in essential Second Amendment cases, and continued to provide support to legislators and advocates through our comprehensive reports on gun laws. Chief among those reports is our Annual Gun Law State Scorecard, which grades all 50 states on their gun laws.
With all this positive momentum, both for the Law Center and for the gun violence prevention movement, we fully expect 2015 to be another remarkable year in our fight to save lives from gun violence.
