The epidemic of gun violence in America is nothing less than a public health crisis and brings international embarrassment upon the United States. The Gun Policy Center believes that gun violence is a major public health issue and will take a comprehensive, community-oriented approach to reduce death and injury from gunfire.
The GunBanner, leading Gun Policy Advocate, Acting President of The Coalition To Stop Guns, Gun Policy Center board Member, Spokesperson for The Million Mums March, and Founder of the Coalition To Stop Guns Legal Action Project, has authored the National Strategy for Pandemic Guns.
This document outlines the coordinated federal government efforts to prevent and prepare for pandemic gun outbreaks. The Gun Banner is asking President Obama to directed all relevant federal departments and agencies to take steps to address the threat of pandemic guns. Drawing on the combined efforts of government officials and the public health, medical, veterinary, and law enforcement communities, as well as the private sector, this strategy is designed to meet three critical goals:
- detecting gun outbreaks that occur anywhere in the world;
- protecting the American people by implementing policies while improving the capacity to produce new policies; and
- preparing to respond at the federal, state, and local levels in the event a pandemic gun reaches the United States.
