Describe the role of law and policy in addressing gun violence at the federal, state, and local levels. 3. Compare the effectiveness of gun violence policies and highlight the importance of changing the way we talk about gun violence. 4.

The class provided facts and evidence on the effects of gun policy. There is plenty of sensationalism regarding guns in the news today. I support the regulation and licensing of guns, and this class gives me ground to stand on.
