Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence

Every day, almost 100 Americans die from gun violence, and an additional 245 people are shot and injured. While this crisis impacts families in every community, in every state, its toll disproportionately hits states with weaker gun laws. Giffords’ Annual Gun Scorecard grades and ranks each state on the strength of its gun laws. It aims to educate users and inform and inspire action.

This year we have seen tremendous momentum to end gun violence—especially from young people, who decided that “enough is enough.” The Scorecard is a tool that is used by these activists, as well as elected officials, journalists, and educators. It demonstrates that there is a significant opportunity—and proven outcomes—to stop this epidemic.

The Scorecard’s gradient background moves from the vibrant blue of analysis and education to the warm red of courage, urgency, and action. This joining of red and blue also speaks America’s need to work across ideological lines to end our gun violence crisis.

About the organization

For nearly 25 years, the legal experts at Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence have been fighting for a safer America by researching, drafting, and defending the laws, policies, and programs proven to save lives from gun violence. Founded in the wake of a 1993 mass shooting in San Francisco, in 2016 the Law Center joined with former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords to form a courageous new force for gun safety that stretches coast to coast.
