We may earn a small part of the sale from links to any products or services on this site. You do not pay anything extra, and your purchase helps support our work.”

Analysis / Bias

In review, the American Firearms Institute does not report the news. The website’s purpose is to be a resource for information regarding guns and statistics. There is occasional use of loaded words when describing how people are to blame for gun deaths and not guns, such as “Its the criminal stupid.” Most information is reasonably sourced to FBI statistics and the ATF.
