Missouri Firearms Survey – Reports

In July of 2020, Missouri Foundation for Health and its partners conducted the Missouri Firearms Survey of over 1,000 Missouri adults to understand firearm-related beliefs, attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors within the state with the intent of informing stakeholders interested in firearm injury and death prevention.

These reports present key findings from the survey, which can serve as a basis for designing evidence-based firearm injury prevention strategies that resonate with individuals who both own and do not own firearms. Moreover, the reports underscore the significance of demographic and community-level differences in firearm-related beliefs and behaviors, highlighting the need for equitable and tailored firearm injury prevention efforts that effectively address the needs of diverse populations.
