Gun Violence Research

The conversation starts here.

With the combined expertise of public health, social welfare, public policy, and criminal justice experts, the Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium informs the public and provides evidence-based, data-driven policy recommendations to disrupt the cycle of firearm-involved mass shootings, homicides, suicides, and accidents.

Here, you’ll find the consortium’s latest research as well as an archive of relevant research from our experts to help form a complete and ever-growing understanding of America’s unique problem with gun violence.
