COVID-19 and Guns Video Series by Duke Center for Firearms Law

I was privileged to be invited recently to contribute to an ongoing series of videos produced by the Duke Center for Firearms Law on COVID-19 and guns.

I was asked to speak about my approach to studying guns, to speculate about why people are buying guns during the COVID-19 pandemic, what misconceptions people have about gun acquisition, and what advice I have for new guns owners.

Watch the YouTube video below:

Other scholars who have been interviewed are Jennifer Carlson, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Arizona.

Forensic psychiatrists Jack Rozel of the University of Pittsburgh and Layla Soliman of Atrium Health Behavioral Health Charlotte.

Trent Steidley, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Criminology, University of Denver.

Jeffrey Swanson, Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine.

David Kopel, Research Director of the Independence Institute and Adjunct Professor of Advanced Constitutional Law at the University of Denver’s  Sturm College of Law.

    • Thanks so much. As I have on the home screen of my other blog:

      Light Over Heat

      My approach to Gun Culture 2.0 is inspired by philosopher Baruch Spinoza: “I have sedulously endeavored not to laugh at human actions, nor to lament them, nor to detest them, but to understand them.”

      I hope people will (continue to) hold me accountable when I don’t do that.
