Summary
In a year that has seen gun violence in the U.S. escalate even more—consider the almost-daily gun deaths on the streets of Chicago or the recent Las Vegas massacre—this Medical Center Hour looks anew at this urgent public health problem. Distinguished bioethicist Steven Miles presents a comprehensive status report on gun deaths (homicides and suicides), including issues of gun supply, the relevance of mental illness, race, and poverty to firearm deaths, the effects of gun law reforms, and the prospects for better prevention of gun violence.
