Gun Violence and Libraries: Safety and Security for the Library Public

Resources for libraries on addressing policies, education, and training on gun violence.

Policy Development

In developing policies, libraries must follow the firearms laws not only for their state, but also their local jurisdiction.  In addition, some local laws list "no carry" exceptions, which may include schools or college campuses, but not public libraries.  The resources listed here are for specific jurisdictions and are provided as samples or suggestions for points to be included in a locally-developed policy.
