  Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds  and
declares   that  firearm  injuries  and  deaths  have  reached  epidemic
proportions, with firearm injuries ranked among the top  ten  causes  of
death among all Americans, and as the leading cause of death among young
African-American  males. The legislature further finds and declares that
this  epidemic  necessitates  public  policies  which  address   firearm
violence  and  injury  as  a  public  health issue and that one critical
component of such policies is an integrated and comprehensive  statewide
effort  to  accurately  document  the  origins,  incidence and nature of
firearm violence and injury in New York state.
  The legislature also finds that dispersed and widely varied  data  and
information  related  to  incidents  of  firearm  violence are presently
collected by state and local law enforcement agencies; and that informa-
tion and data related to the nature,  severity  and  causes  of  firearm
injuries are also regularly compiled by health care providers engaged in
the  treatment of such injuries. The legislature finds and declares that
a coordinated and fully integrated statewide network of data and  infor-
