What Role Can Regulation Play in Ending Mass Violence?

The United States is Home to 42% of all Civilian-Owned Guns in the World

By IGI Global on Mar 6, 2023
Crime scene tape According to Amnesty International, over 500 people die every day from gun violence globally. In the United States alone, 39,000 people are killed by guns every year, making the country an outlier when compared to other developed nations that have more strict gun regulations. The state of California recently experienced their sixth mass shooting of 2023, in which three people were killed and four were injured.
How can we mitigate the occurrences of mass shootings in the United States and globally? The established book, Examining Gun Regulations, Warning Behaviors, and Policies to Prevent Mass Shootings (ISBN: 9781799839163) published by IGI Global and authored by an expert in criminology, explores the importance of enacting new policies to minimize the occurrences of mass shootings, and provides perspectives from individuals involved in gun violence prevention, preparation, and emergency response and recovery.

This book is a critical examination of mass shootings in the United States, specifically focusing on debates and responses in the aftermath of high-profile incidents…Interview results with experts in gun violence prevention activism, emergency management, risk and threat assessment provide greater insight into these fields.
