If the topic of gun control was polarizing before the 2016 election, it has reached the height of toxicity in the aftermath. How do we even begin to engage in a continued national conversation?
Enter two Duke University faculty members—Philip Cook, professor of Public Policy, Economics and Sociology; and Kristin Goss, associate professor of Political Science—and their recently released The Gun Debate: What Everyone Needs to Know.
From the gun culture that took root early in American history to the mass shootings that continually bring public discussion of gun control to a fever pitch, this book, and our evening with the authors, will immerse you in the issues at hand: the latest research on gun control effectiveness, the connection between violent crime and mental illness and the question of whether more guns make us safer.
