The Case for Gun Policy Reforms in America

An October report from researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, The Case for Gun Policy Reforms in America, examines policies and initiatives for reducing gun violence.
"When you deny high-risk people access to guns, the evidence shows that saves lives," said lead author Daniel Webster. "And when you regulate all gun sales, fewer guns get diverted to criminals."
Sections in the report include: The Burden of Gun Violence in the United States; Why Firearms Prohibition for High-Risk Persons Should be Broadened; Regulating Gun Sales Can Prevent Diversion of Guns to Criminals and Underage Youth; and Right-to-Carry Laws Do Not Make Us Safer and Likely Increase Aggravated Assaults.

*Note - this report was first reported in the October 30, 2012 GVP Report.
