More than 80% of all firearm-related death in Oregon is suicide. Access to firearms increases the risk of suicide.

A 2020 report published by Stanford Medicine found that men who owned handguns were eight times more likely than men who didn’t to die of self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Women who owned handguns were more than 35 times more likely than women who didn't to kill themselves with a gun.


The Ceasefire Oregon Education Foundation works to reduce the number of gun injuries and deaths in Oregon by educating the public and providing opportunities to dispose of unwanted firearms.
