GunPolicy.org works mainly in the area of gun violence research and dissemination of information. Unlike Americans Against Gun Violence, it does engage in legislative advocacy or grass roots organizing in order to change gun policies.

Due to lack of funding, GunPolicy.org stopped updating its website in 2016. Americans Against Gun Violence is actively seeking to raise money to continue to collect data comparing rates of gun ownership, rates of gun violence, and differences in gun control regulations between the United States and other high income democratic countries. Contributions to help in this effort can be made via the Join/Donate page of the Americans Against Gun Violence website.
