2014-2019 SUMMARY 2019 GRAPHIC with 2018


The Gun Violence Archive is an online archive of gun violence incidents collected from over 7,500  law enforcement, media, government and commercial sources daily in an effort to provide near-real time data about the results of gun violence. 

Gun Violence Archive (GVA) is a not for profit corporation formed in 2013 to provide free online public access to accurate information about gun-related violence in the United States. 



Moms Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We pass stronger gun laws and work to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families.


We also work in our own communities and with business leaders to encourage a culture of responsible gun ownership.


We know that gun violence is preventable, and we’re committed to doing what it takes to keep families safe.



U.S. Senate leadership has had over 200 days to pass gun safety legislation and save lives. 


In just the first weekend of August, 31 people were killed in mass acts of gun violence in 24 hours, and on average 100 Americans will be shot and killed every day the Senate does not act.


Demand that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and your U.S. Senators pass background checks and a strong red flag law that will help prevent gun violence tragedies.
