In the last two decades, with the Law Center's dedicated team of attorneys leading the way, California has become a national leader in the movement for effective gun laws.
The rate of gun violence in California has also fallen notably compared to rest of the country. Today, California has the ninth lowest gun death rate of any state nationwide when twenty years ago, it had the thirty-fifth lowest rate.
California has taken a comprehensive and courageous approach to addressing the epidemic of gun violence, and that approach has succeeded. The state's strong gun laws not only help save lives, but also reduce the trafficking of illegal guns to other states and to Mexico, protecting lives in neighboring communities.
This publication examines the history of success in enacting smart gun laws in California and how those laws have contributed to a significant drop in gun death rates in the state.
