Summit on Reducing Gun Violence (Video)
Johns Hopkins University is convening more than 20 global experts on gun policy and violence on Jan. 14 and Jan. 15. Their task is to summarize relevant research and its implications for policymakers and concern citizens. On Day 1, the Summit on Reducing Gun Violence began with an introduction and welcome by Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg provided opening remarks. Other speakers included: Daniel Webster, ScD, MPH; Matthew Miller, MD, ScD, MPH; Philip J. Cook, PhD. Take a look.
Within weeks of the Summit, the Johns Hopkins University Press will publish the book, Reducing Gun Violence in America: Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis. Collected for the first time in one volume, this reliable, empirical research and legal analysis will inform the policy debate by helping lawmakers and opinion leaders identify the policy changes that are most likely to reduce gun violence in the U.S. The book will be available in late January and can be purchased from Amazon and other booksellers worldwide, or directly from the Press.
