This ANNALS volume is a collection of new scholarly articles that address the current state of America’s gun ownership, how it came to be, the distinct frames that scholars use to understand gun violence, and potential solutions to the social problems it creates. We offer up-to-date research that examines what works and what does not. From this, we suggest ways forward for research, policy, and practice that are reliant on sound scholarship and evidence-based reasoning.
In this introduction, we provide an overview of gun death in the U.S. and evidence of state-by-state variation of America’s gun health crisis. We go on to discuss the different types of gun injury and death that affect society, presenting context for the volume and a brief history of gun policy in America. Finally, we will introduce each of the articles included here and underscore why this collection of interdisciplinary scholarship is timely and relevant to our national conversation about preventing gun death and injury.
