Gun violence is an urgent, complex, and multifaceted problem. It requires evidence-based, multifaceted solutions. Psychology can make important contributions to policies that prevent gun violence. Toward this end, in February 2013 the American Psychological Association commissioned this report by a panel of experts to convey research-based conclusions and recommendations (and to identify gaps in such knowledge) on how to reduce the incidence of gun violence -- whether by homicide, suicide, or mass shootings -- nationwide.
Following are chapter-by-chapter highlights and short summaries of conclusions and recommendations of the report's authors. More information and supporting citations can be found within the chapters themselves.
