The Consortium for Risked-Based Firearm Policy




In order to share the good work you have been doing, we are sending out a monthly update with new studies, projects, and articles that our Consortium members are working on. Please feel free to send us any recently published studies or projects throughout the month, and we will compile and distribute to the group.


Please note that the Ed Fund recently created a new page for the Consortium for Risk-Based Firearm Policy that is available here. You’ll find our mission statement, reports, and recent press available on the site. Most recently, Dr. Amy Barnhorst was quoted and the Consortium was mentioned in a piece in The Acadiana Advocate titled, “Why didn’t bizarre behavior block man accused in Lafayette police officer’s death from buying a gun?


As usual, don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or ideas.
