Every year, gun violence costs the American economy $229 billion. While the human cost of gun violence is devastating, the economic toll it takes is often overlooked. Many of these costs come at taxpayer expense, further exacerbating the devastating impact of gun violence on communities across the country.

To lower both the human and economic costs of gun violence, our legislators need to prioritize public safety over gun lobby profits. Our Annual Gun Law Scorecard highlights the undeniable correlation between stronger gun laws and lower gun death rates. To help legislators and gun safety advocates enact these lifesaving gun laws, we produce a wide range of resources, including publications and factsheets.

We are continuing to update the below analysis of the billions of dollars states lose to gun violence every year. To partner with us in your state, fill out our request assistance form.
