Membership: 250,000 dues-paying members. HCI claims 1,000,000+ members,
but this includes contacts by interested parties by any means.

HCI originated (1974) as the National Council to Control Handguns (NCCH), a group which lobbied for government restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms through support for restrictions on the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer, and civilian possession of handguns. The organization voiced a desire for an eventual handgun ban through gradual steps, but changed its name and espoused goals due to results of a survey. In 1991, HCI amended its Articles of Incorporation to reflect its support of restrictions on rifles and shotguns as well.

The CPHV is located at 1400 K Street, N.W., Suite 500, Washington, DC 20005.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV), was originally formed in 1975 as the National Coalition to Ban Handguns (NCBH) "for the purposes of banning the importation, manufacture, sale, transfer, ownership and possession of handguns." In 1989, after expanding its efforts to include restrictions on all firearms, the group adopted its new name, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

The United Methodist Church was the principle founder of CSGV. CSGV's membership is comprised of individual supporters. Ex-CIA employee, Edward O. Welles, who also helped to form HCI, was an original NCBH board member and, reportedly, NCCH/HCI was an unreported member of the Coalition for several years.

CSGV's policy-making membership is comprised of the following 44 national organizations:

The Educational Fund to End Handgun Violence (EFEHV)

Headquarters: Box 72
110 Maryland Avenue, N.E.
Washington, DC 20002
(202) 544-7227

Director: Josh Horwitz

Incorporated in 1978 as an "educational" spin-off to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the EFEHV is supported by private donations and foundation grants. The fund distributes anti-gun research on handgun violence, firearms marketing and production, and firearms design.

The Violence Policy Center (VPC)

Headquarters: 1300 N Street, N.W.
Washington, DC 20005
(202) 783-4071

Executive Director: Josh Sugarmann
Of Counsel: Kristen Rand

The Violence Policy Center is the new name of the New Right Watch (NRW), a non-profit group that 'researched" what it perceived as a new right-wing American political movement. NRW focused its attack on semi-automatic firearms with two releases:

"Assault Weapons and Accessories in America" (1988), a joint effort with EFEHV, and "Assault Weapons: Analysis, New Research, and Legislation" (1989). Funding for New Right Watch was received from individual and foundation grants.

VPC is a non-profit national "educational" foundation that proposes firearms restrictions, including total handgun prohibition, as measures to reduce violence in America. VPC's Executive Director, Josh Sugarmann, formerly the Executive Director of the New Right Watch and, previously, with the National Coalition to Ban Handguns, authored a book attacking the NRA -- NRA: Money, Firepower, and Fear (1992). In 1997, VPC produced a report attacking NRA's Eddie Eagle program, calling it "Joe Camel with feathers". This attack was so scurrilous that many in the media denounced it. It stands as clear evidence that VPC is more interesed in attacking NRA than in finding any rational or effective solutions to violence in America.

CeaseFire, Inc.

Headquarters: 1290 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10104
(212) 484-1616

CeaseFire runs TV Public Service Announcements with celebrities and runs print advertising in major newspapers and magazines with the message that guns are dangerous and gun ownership is a threat to family and friends. Their stated goal is to promote "handgun-free homes and families" by claiming that gun ownership is a public health threat.
