Founded in the wake of the July 1, 1993, assault weapon massacre at 101 California Street in San Francisco that left eight dead and six wounded, the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence is now the premier resource for legal expertise and information regarding state and federal firearms laws. Made up of the foremost gun law attorneys in the nation, the Law Center tracks and analyzes firearms legislation in all 50 states, files amicus briefs in critical Second Amendment cases across the country, and works with lawmakers and advocates to craft and promote legislation that will reduce gun violence and save lives. As a nonprofit organization founded by attorneys, we remain dedicated to preventing the loss of lives caused by gun violence through educating the public, free of charge, on America’s gun laws and the commonsense solutions that will reduce the epidemic of gun violence in this country.
The Law Center operates as part of the Americans for Responsible Solutions Foundation, the 501(c)3 arm of Americans for Responsible Solutions. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
