Prevention of Gun Related Violence
Adopted January 2014
The Vermont Public Health Association (VtPHA) recognizes that gun-related death and disability has a profound and lasting deleterious effect on the physical and emotional health of individuals, families, and communities. VtPHA believes in a public health approach (including education, public policies, and regulation) that effectively reduces the risk of individual and community exposure to gun-related violence.
