Reducing Gun Violence

Our Work

The United States Conference of Mayors supports a comprehensive approach to reducing the scourge of gun violence. It has called for the enactment of sensible gun safety legislation and policies since 1968 and recognizes the importance of strong enforcement of federal, state and local gun laws. It also recognizes that prevention, the involvement of community leaders and organizations, and investment in our neighborhoods and our residents are key to reducing gun violence and making our cities safer.
