Armed Assembly: Guns, Demonstrations, and Political Violence in America

August 23, 2021

This collaboration between the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) and Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund (Everytown) presents quantitative research on demonstrations in the United States during the 18-month period from January 2020 through June 2021, documenting 560 events where demonstrators, counter-demonstrators, or other individuals or groups were present and carried or brandished firearms. While most demonstrations in the country have remained peaceful, analysis of the data reveals clear patterns and characteristics that raise the risk of violent or destructive activity during public gatherings, including easy access to firearms.
