The debate over the proper place of guns in the United States enacts persistent American conflicts: over police violence, race and poverty, crime, and the role of law and the state. There are many worlds of the gun in America, and they are at war.

In Gunworlds, we interrogate the intractability of the gun debate by mapping the different worlds of the gun; interviewing people who represent those worlds (public health workers, veterans, rural gun owners and activists), and designing objects and interventions that reflect back the sometimes starkly different social realities which they inhabit.
