Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence Overview
Programs: POLICY EDUCATIONOf the nearly ten million gun transactions that take place in the United States every year, only six million are processed by licensed gun dealers who conduct criminal background checks. The remaining 4 million transactions are considered "secondary sales" and are conducted with no questions asked. Consequently, these secondary sales provide an easy means for criminals and other prohibited purchasers to obtain guns.
Through polling, the Educational Fund knows that the vast majority of the public is unaware of the problem of unregulated gun sales and would support measures to regulate the secondary market. To effectively regulate the secondary market, the Educational Fund's policy objectives include closing the gun show loophole, universal background checks, and handgun licensing and registration. The Educational Fund seeks to educate the general public, activists, and policy makers about these policies.
