In March of 2013, shortly after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, experts in the areas of mental health, public health, law enforcement, law and gun violence prevention met for a two-day conference to discuss research and identify areas of consensus regarding the intersection of gun violence, public health and mental health. This meeting resulted in the formation of the Consortium for Risk-Based Firearm Policy and the publication of two reports outlining research and recommending evidence-based gun violence prevention policies at the State and Federal level.
