    Abstract

    There are many pieces of this issue that need to be examined. We need to address communities, we need to address individuals and families, we need to address policies, we have to address how we manage post-injury for people who survive gunshots. We need to study how we store guns – how do we reduce access for youth who are at risk for suicide? We need to better understand how Extreme Risk Protection Order laws [or red flag laws, which restrict gun possession or purchase in an at-risk individual] are being used, which parts of them may be working, and what happens when [the temporary restriction period] runs out. And, for example, with the tragic shooting this week in Texas, we need to understand how that will impact the community going forward. There's an awful lot of untouched questions right now..
