The Trump administration promises broad expansion of gun rights in the U.S. As candidates, Trump-Pence ran with the full endorsement of the NRA. They vowed to end gun-free zones in schools and airports, severely curtail gun-violence prevention efforts, and make it ever-easier for people to carry guns across state lines and into cities such as New York. These promises have already begun to come to fruition, with many more soon to come. What are the implications for gun-violence-prevention policy, legislation, reporting, and research under Trump-Pence? What role will the NRA play in the new administration? What impact might legislation such as concealed-carry reciprocity have for gun-control efforts in cities such as New York? What new strategies are needed to promote balance between gun rights and public safety, or foster conversations between disparate people, groups, and factions along the oft-contentious U.S. gun debate?
