Special Event - Gun Policy Summit - January 14 & 15, 2013

Summit on Reducing Gun Violence in America: Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis

On January 14th and 15th, the Johns Hopkins University brought together more than 20 global leaders in gun policy and violence—representing the fields of law, medicine, public health, advocacy and public safety—for the Summit on Reducing Gun Violence in America.

Convened by the University, the Summit, which drew over 450 participants, featured presentations of research findings on a range of gun policy and violence topics, including the enforcement of gun laws, guns and public health, second amendment issues and public opinion on gun policy.

Summit contributors met immediately after the Summit to distill the best research and data into a set of clear and comprehensive policy recommendations to prevent gun violence.

These recommendations are available to the public after a press conference at the Summit on Tuesday January 15th 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
