I am happy to provide data from my own work for replication purposes or for use in other studies. Below are resources that I am sometimes contacted for. If you are looking for some data that you think I might have but haven't listed here please do contact me.

Data on Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs)
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) maintains a registry of all federally licensed firearms dealers in the United States. You can find data on FFLs from 2014-2019 on their website.
I happen to have these BATFE registries for years prior to 2014 as well. I collected these FFL registries from the BATFE website before they did a series of updates to the site and removed many years of data going all the way back to 2004. I have also purchased copies of these BATFE registries for 1995, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003 from the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting (NICAR) Data Library sometime around 2014. However the NICAR folks don't seem to be offering those databases anymore. The NICAR data on FFLs was used in Steidley, Ramey and Shrider. 2017. “Gun Shops as Local Institutions: Federal Firearms Licensees, Social Disorganization, and Neighborhood Violent Crime.” Social Forces 96(1):265–98.
If you are interested in using these data I am happy to provide what I can, but the NICAR data agreement prevents me from sharing them openly. But I am open to collaborations.
Also known as the Ohio State "State Gun Law Database" (SGLD), this databse was funded by the National Institute of Justice (Grant Number 2014-R2-CX-0004). I worked as a research assistant on this grant under the supervision of Dana Haynie and Cynthia Colen at Ohio State University. While I wasn't a PI on this project, I did construct the data and codebook.
