Action Alert:
Read GVPedia White Paper on Defensive Gun Use

GVPedia is a terrific new website that gives users access to a comprehensive collection of peer-reviewed studies on gun violence. The creator of GVPedia, Devin Hughes, is also authoring “White Papers” on different topics to bring together some of this research in a more accessible way.

The latest white paper is “Defensive Gun Uses.”

If you believe the pro-gun community, Americans are using their guns constantly to deter home invasions.

As you may know, pro-gun activists frequently overstate the number of times American gun owners use their weapons in legitimate acts of self-defense. The GVPedia white paper, which is just a single page, has all the nitty-gritty information you will need to refute such claims—whether you’re chatting with someone online or face-to-face with a legislator.

Please read the white paper on DGUs  at the following link and then share it on Facebook and/or Twitter:


Once you have read the white paper, click the orange banner at the top of this page to report your action!

Thanks for doing the best you can to stay educated on the gun issue. As Devin likes to say, now you’re “armed with reason”!
