Firearms are often a factor in both self-directed and interpersonal violencerelated deaths and injuries, and understanding more about the relationship between firearms and violence is essential to improving population health and safety. Critical information is needed to improve our understanding of how best to prevent firearm-related violence and its consequences, including

• Evaluating the effectiveness of interventions to prevent gun-related violence, including those likely to have the greatest public health impact.
