Best Practices in Preventing Gun Violence

We believe that gun violence is a public health crisis and that we must figure out ways to live with guns while 1) employing measures to make them safer and 2) keeping them out of the hands of those who may cause harm to themselves or others.  We’ve examined a few of the programs which seek to address these issues.

The program most successful in reducing violent crime and gang violence:
     Group Violence Intervention (GVI), aka Ceasefire
Programs which complement GVI:
     Becoming a Man
     Cure Violence, a public health model
Gun safety campaigns:
     Safe Firearm Storage – Best Practices
     Sandy Hook Promise: Know the Signs
     Be SMART for Kids
