Abstract

Tens of thousands of Americans are killed by firearms every year, and yet the issue of gun related violence has been little mentioned in the 2020 presidential election campaign. Elizabeth Charash and Julie Norman write that the ubiquity of guns in America is linked to a greater likelihood of police shootings of civilians, and higher homicide rates for law enforcement officers. The issue of gun violence is not likely to go away, they comment, meaning that policymakers need to think more closely about how firearm ownership is central to the problem.
