The purpose of this guide is to support the University of Maryland's participation in the 120 Initiative, which is an initiative by the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area to advance action research based plans to reduce gun violence, which claims the lives of more than 120 people each day. The resources on this guide have been put together to help people find information about gun violence in the United States.
