"The Violence Policy Center (VPC), a national non-profit organization based in Washington, DC works to stop this annual toll of death and injury through research, advocacy, education, and litigation. The VPC approaches gun violence as a public health issue, advocating that firearms be held to the same health and safety standards that virtually all other consumer products must meet. Guns and tobacco are the only two consumer products for which there is no federal oversight for health and safety." (http://www.vpc.org/aboutvpc.htm)
