Unlike other consumer products-from toys to jumbo jets-guns are not regulated for health and safety. No other industry in America has been allowed to evade review of a product that causes so much social and economic harm. Consider this: firearms cause more deaths a year than the 15,000 consumer products regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission combined.

The Press Area offers the following information:

  • Background outlines the facts about firearms' deadly exemption from health and safety standards and how regulation could reduce the more than 90,000 gun-related deaths and injuries that plague America each year.

  • New Statistics offers the latest research from CFA and our coalition partners.

  • News Archive provides contact information for organizations working to regulate guns, the list of 120 groups that support The Firearms Safety and Consumer Protection Act by state, and the current list of co-sponsors.

  • Studies gives links to research on aspects of the consumer product approach by topics such as: Firearms Marketing; Gun Industry; Handguns, 50 Calibers and Guns Used in High-Profile Shootings; and Polls. Links will take you out of the www.regulateguns.org website.

Press Releases are from Consumer Federation of America and the Violence Policy Center on issues related to the consumer product approach. Links will take you out of the www.regulateguns.org website.
