PSR believes that the only way to lower the number of unnecessary gun deaths is to get guns out of the home. Due to the combination of a fear of violent crime and the mistaken impression that guns offer a measure of security, more and more people choose to own guns. In order to stop the perpetuation of the myth that guns in the home offer protection, PSR is waging a campaign to educate the public about the true dangers caused by guns in the home.
