The Impact of Gun Violence in Your Community

Gun violence negatively impacts many communities. In some areas it is pervasive and others less common, but the cost to our society goes far beyond the homicides and wounded victims and their families. Gunfire-related crimes have a major economic impact. According to a 2016 study by the Urban Institute, when gunfire happens in a community, property values decline and business owners move out, creating a vicious cycle of low economic growth, fewer employment opportunities, and more gun violence. Investing in a gun violence reduction program saves lives, improves quality of life, and yields a positive economic return on investment.
