On an average day, 108 people are shot dead in the United States (including suicides, homicides, and accidents). This is a shocking statistic, but it is easy to forget that these are human beings, not just numbers. Steve started the National Gun Violence Memorial in December of 2015 to humanize the problem by showing victims' faces and telling their stories. It is now a community effort led by several dedicated volunteers and with contributions from thousands of visitors.

About 14% of the pages on this site are for people who were killed while committing some kind of crime. We believe that every loss of life is a tragedy, and we know that even those who did horrible things have friends and family who miss them and wish that they made different choices in life. These pages are for the friends and family of the deceased, and we ask that you please respect their grief.
At the same time, we do not try to hide or obscure the facts. We provide links to news articles that describe each incident.
Most of our photos come from public places on the Internet. This includes obituaries, fundraising sites (such as Go Fund Me), news articles, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We also allow family and friends to post photos.
Certainly every case is different, but there is a common theme. The vast majority of these situations became deadly because a gun was available.
