The faculty discuss research on firearms in the context of severe and fatal domestic violence. They address the risks posed by firearms of both homicide and suicide, health impacts of gun injuries, as well as prevention and retrieval initiatives. The system operative in the Miami-Dade courts for identification, surrender and retrieval, search and seizure, storage, and return are examined. Forms utilized in the firearms retrieval process are considered.
