Washington, D.C. — The Center for American Progress will host a press conference call featuring Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy and Tallahassee, Florida, Mayor Andrew Gillum to discuss a newly released CAP report that has found a strong correlation between the strength of state gun laws and levels of gun violence. The report, which analyzes 10 specific indicators of gun violence in all 50 states, found that the 10 states with the weakest gun laws collectively have levels of gun violence that are more than three times higher than the 10 states with the strongest gun laws. The Center for American Progress has also published an interactive map that links to state-specific fact sheets providing detailed information about gun violence in each state.
