2Title:  Priorities for research to reduce the threat of firearm-related violence

 Publication:  National Academies Press, Washington, DC, c2013. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "PREPUBLICATION COPY: UNCORRECTED PROOFS." Dr. Jerome Barondess was on the reviewing committee. Title from PDF title caption (viewed June 24, 2013). Includes bibliographical references. Individuals use firearms legally for a variety of activities, including recreation, self-protection, and work. However, firearms can also be used to intimidate, coerce, or carry out threats of violence. Fatal and nonfatal firearm violence poses a serious threat to the safety and welfare of the American public. Although violent crime rates have declined in recent years, the U.S. rate of firearm-related deaths is the highest among industrialized countries. In 2010, incidents in the U.S. involving firearms injured or killed more than 105,000 Americans, of which there were twice as many nonfatal firearm-related injuries (73,505) than deaths. Nonfatal violence often has significant physical and psychological impacts, including psychological outcomes for those in proximity to individuals who are actually injured and die from gun violence. The recent, highly publicized, tragic mass shootings in Newtown, Connecticut; Aurora, Colorado; Oak Creek, Wisconsin; and Tucson, Arizona, have sharpened the public's interest in protecting our children and communities from the effects of firearm violence. In January 2013, President Obama issued 23 executive orders directing federal agencies to improve knowledge of the causes of firearm violence, the interventions that might prevent it, and strategies to minimize its public health burden. One of these executive orders noted that "[i]n addition to being a law enforcement challenge, firearm violence is also a..." For the purposes of this report, the terms "firearm violence," "gun violence," and "firearm-related violence" refer to morbidity and mortality associated with the possession and use of firearms. Firearms use a propellant or powder charge to fire a projectile and are distinct from other guns, such as BB, pellet, and other airsoft guns.

4Title:  Firearms and violence: a critical review   
 Creator:  National Research Council (U.S.) Committee to Improve Research Information and Data on Firearms. | Wellford, Charles F. | Pepper, John, 1964- | Petrie, Carol. | National Research Council (U.S.) Committee on Law and Justice. 
 Publication:  National Academies Press, Washington, DC, c2005. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. For years proposals for gun control and the ownership of firearms have been among the most contentious issues in American politics. For public authorities to make reasonable decisions on these matters, they must take into account facts about the relationship between guns and violence as well as conflicting constitutional claims and divided public opinion. In performing these tasks, legislators need adequate data and research to judge both the effects of firearms on violence and the effects of different violence control policies. Readers of the research literature on firearms may sometimes find themselves unable to distinguish scholarship from advocacy. Given the importance of this issue, there is a pressing need for a clear and unbiased assessment of the existing portfolio of data and research. Firearms and Violence uses conventional standards of science to examine three major themes - firearms and violence, the quality of research, and the quality of data available. The book assesses the strengths and limitations of current databases, examining current research studies on firearm use and the efforts to reduce unjustified firearm use and suggests ways in which they can be improved.

7Title:  Gun shows: Brady checks and crime gun traces   
 Creator:  United States Department of the Treasury. | United States Department of Justice. | United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. 
 Publication:  Dept. of the Treasury, Dept. of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Washington, D.C.], [1999] 
 Notes:  "January 1999." Title from title caption (viewed on March 24, 2014). Includes bibliographical references. The proposals in this report strike a balance between the interests of law-abiding citizens and the needs of law enforcement. Specifically, the proposals will allow gun shows to continue to provide a legal forum for the sale and exchange of firearms and will not prevent the sale or acquisition of firearms by sportsmen and firearms enthusiasts. At the same time, this initiative will ensure background checks of all firearms purchasers at gun shows and assist law enforcement in preventing firearms sales to felons and other prohibited persons, as well as inhibiting illegal firearms trafficking. The proposals also ensure that gun show promoters run their shows responsibly, that all firearms purchases at gun shows are subject to NICS checks, and that all firearms sold at the shows can be traced if they are used in crime. Further, these recommendations will guarantee that everyone selling at gun shows understands the legal obligations and the risks of disposing of firearms irresponsibly and that law enforcement has the resources necessary to investigate and prosecute those who violate the law. In short, as requested by President Clinton, the proposals will close the gun show loophole.

8Title:  Trace the guns: the link between gun laws and interstate gun trafficking : a report from Mayors Against Illegal Guns   
 Creator:  Mayors Against Illegal Guns 
 Publication:  Mayors Against Illegal Guns, S.l.], 2010. 
 Notes:  "September 2010." Includes bibliographical references. Title from title screen (viewed June 24, 2013). Every year, tens of thousands of guns make their way into the hands of criminals through illegal trafficking channels. These firearms contribute to the more than 12,000 gun murders in the United States each year. This report seeks to explain where crime guns originate, where they are recovered in crimes, and whether state gun laws help curb the flow of these illegal weapons. Taken together, this report seeks to present a comprehensive analysis of gun trafficking patterns throughout the United States. It finds that in 2009 just ten states supplied nearly half of the guns crossing state lines before being recovered in crimes -- Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nevada, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. The report finds a strong association between a state's gun laws and a state's propensity to export crime guns, and concludes that certain gun laws are an important component in reducing criminal access to firearms.
