Gun FactsTM
Returning honesty to the gun control debate

Gun Facts™ debunks common myths about guns, violence and gun control policy. It is intended as a reference guide for journalists, politicians and anyone interested in learning about guns policy and restoring honesty to the debate.

The menu links above provide detailed information, with full citations. Divided into chapters based on gun control topics (assault weapons, ballistic finger printing, firearm availability, etc.), Gun Facts makes finding information about gun control policy quick and easy.

Each chapter lists common gun myths (both pro- and antu-gun), then lists a number of documented and cited facts from high quality, independent sources including government databases, peer reviewed studies, and more. Thus when a neighbor, pundit or politician repeats some sound bite about gun policy, you can quickly find that myth then rebuke with accurate information.
