This timely report from the Eugene S. Farley, Jr. Health Policy Center at CU Anschutz examines current gun safety policies throughout the United States and presents evidence-based opportunities to strengthen gun safety legislation.

The health policy brief, “Protecting Colorado Youth from Gun Violence,” reviews the impact of gun violence on youth in Colorado and across the nation. It notes that addressing the epidemic will require a multi-pronged approach. The brief assesses opportunities and potential legislation to protect Colorado youth from suicide, homicide and accidental gun death.

The report is the work of Jennifer Mijer, pediatric senior resident, and Shale Wong, professor of pediatrics and family medicine, in the CU School of Medicine.
