Access to a gun makes it five times more likely that a woman will die at the hands of a domestic abuser.

Every month, an average of 70 women are shot and killed by an intimate partner and nearly 1 million women alive today have had a gun used against them by an intimate partner. Research clearly shows that disrupting abusers’ access to guns can save lives.

National Domestic Violence Hotline

If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE (7233), or text START to 88788 from anywhere in the U.S.

This month, help raise awareness of intimate partner violence by sharing resources and shining a light on prevention.

Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, can take many forms. Understanding the behaviors that define domestic violence is a crucial way to take part in prevention and assist others in crisis.

All forms of intimate partner violence are preventable. Common-sense laws that keep guns out of the hands of abusive partners can help to reduce it.
