Watch a discussion about the ramifications of the Supreme Court's recent decision related to carrying guns.

Recently, The Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Solutions at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health held a panel discussion following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen.

Webinar experts discussed:

  • How the requirement that courts evaluate Second Amendment cases using solely text, history and tradition disregards public safety.
  • Research that shows more relaxed concealed carry laws lead to an increase in violent crimes in addition to shootings by police.
  • How gun laws relate to mass incarceration, the unequal burden of gun violence and how that may be exacerbated by the Supreme Court’s decision.

Watch the video:


Our friends, the very talented Richard Spano and Jim Bulleit, have gifted us with a song to honor and remember the children massacred in Uvalde.

What Lessons Can We Learn?

From RetroReport.org:

In the 80s, the attempted assassination of President Reagan and the shooting of his press secretary, Jim Brady, sparked a call for gun control. Decades later, are there lessons from that effort for the students who survived the Parkland shooting?
