Policy Forum To Examine Gun Violence As a Public Health Issue, May 28, Registration Required
May 28, 2013 · Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall

It has been recognized, however, that these rare mass shootings are not the only gun crimes committed in our country and that the problem is multifaceted. When developing policy to control and prevent such crimes it is crucial to look at all contributors to gun violence, including but not limited to, mental health issues, violence in media and entertainment, the culture of gun ownership in America, and gun control legislation.(share)
