Extract

In 2010, more than 105,000 people were injured or killed in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Tragic mass shootings have focused public attention on finding ways to protect children and communities from firearm violence. A new report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the National Research Council proposes priorities for a research agenda to improve understanding of the public health aspects of gun-related violence, including its causes, health burden, and possible interventions. According to the committee that wrote the report, significant progress can be achieved in three to five years through a research program that addresses five high-priority areas: the characteristics of gun violence, risk and protective factors, prevention and other interventions, gun safety technology, and the influence of video games and other media.
