Using data from the Homicide Index, international research on homicide, and crime reduction literature, the authors explore the potential for reducing homicide. Four categories of homicide are analyzed in depth: domestic partner homicide, the killing of infants, alcohol-related homicide, and homicide involving guns and knives. In order to reduce homicides committed with guns, there must be attention to both supply and demand factors, such as stronger controls on availability as well as strong penalties for illegal possession.
