Gun Policy Research Essays

The Gun Policy in America initiative produced detailed reviews describing what is and isn't known about the effects of gun policies. These essays summarize the available evidence on other gun policy topics that are frequently discussed—such as the lessons from other countries that have enacted restrictive gun policies, the definition of mass shooting, the relationship between mental health care access and suicide, and the challenges faced by researchers seeking to better understand gun policies and gun use.
