Some Musings About Guns

August 27, 2023 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am

Ken Schechtman, Ph.D. and professor of Biostatistics and Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, will be presenting Some Musings About Guns. It will be a heavily data-driven talk focused on the following questions:

  • How many suicides, homicides, and other gun deaths are there?
  • Who are the perpetrators and victims of gun violence?
  • Where is gun violence most prevalent?
  • What is the association between gun ownership and gun deaths?
  • What do voters say they believe about gun control? How do they actually vote?

As time permits, we will discuss the implications of the data regarding gun control measures that are likely to have an impact on firearm mortality.
