Available as an eBook!

Gun Violence Prevention: A Public Health Approach acknowledges that guns are a part of the environment and culture. This book focuses on how to make society safer, not how to eliminate guns. Using the conceptual model for injury prevention, the book explores the factors contributing to gun violence and considers risk and protective factors in developing strategies to prevent gun violence and decrease its toll. It guides you with science and policy that make communities safer.

Gun Violence Prevention: A Public Health Approach focuses on effective strategies for productive dialogue about gun safety while protecting the rights of responsible owners. The book is appropriate for public health practitioners, advocates, students, policymakers and the public.

"What I expected from the title was a book supporting the removal of guns from law-abiding citizens, but what I found was a sensible solution for the reduction of violence involving firearms. This book is a must-read for everyone who is concerned about the number of lives injured or lost due to the use of firearms. After viewing documentaries and news specials about gun violence and control, I found this book to be superior with its goal of reducing firearm violence for everyone.
