Fundamentals of Firearms and Ammunition: Facts, Realities and Myths

Webinar //


Dec 13 2022, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM EST


Understanding the designs of weapons, ammunition, and their wounding properties is essential as a component of firearm injury prevention and mitigation, as all firearms and ammunition are not the same.

At this members-only webinar, attendees will learn to describe the differences between the types of firearms and their loading mechanisms; discuss the variety of ammunition type and how this influences injury; and begin to understand the importance of accurate weapon and ammunition descriptors when entering into discussions with firearm owners and advocates and collaboratively advocating for policy and program interventions.

This webinar is sponsored by the ISC-SC Gun Violence Prevention Topical Group, the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Section, and the Injury Control and Emergency Health Services Section.
