Reducing Gun Violence in America: Evidence for Change is designed to provide learners with the best available science and insights from top scholars across the country as well as the skills to understand which interventions are the most effective to offer a path forward for reducing gun violence in our homes, schools, and communities. Through this course, you will learn how to: 1. Appreciate the scope of gun violence and the importance of considering the issue across a variety of contexts. 2. 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. Describe state standards for civilian gun carrying and use and how those standards affect crime and violence. 5. Describe how firearm design is regulated, the effective and just enforcement of firearm laws, and strategies for reducing police-involved shootings. 6. Identify and explain evidence-based programs to reduce gun violence and understand public opinion on gun policy. As a student of this course, it’s important to recognize that you are part of an international learning community.

Outstanding course, I am so very pleased these experts and educators came together to create this. I have and will continue to highly recommend it to people I know.



This is an excellent, thoughtful, and thought-provoking course, one that should be required for all legislators and people with any interest in guns or gun control.

T​his class was pretty good. There was a lot of information presented by experts which was great. The amount of information, the way it was presented and who it was presented by were all top notch. There are two reasons I am rating this 4 out of 5 stars instead of 5 out of 5 stars.

1​. They really need an audio engineer to make all the volume levels the same. Switching from one video to the next could be almost painful.

2​. The presenters are not shy about displaying their bias. Having bias is totally fine and not a reason to dock points. Where this crosses the line is statements such as explaining why a Congressman wrote a bill as "for his friends in the gun industry" or proclaiming that George Zimmerman was racially motivated when he shot Trayvon Martin(this was proven false by the courts). The class has a bit too many statements like these to be rated a 5 out of 5.

B​ut, all in all, a pretty good course and I learned a bit.

The problem is not the content; information is current and insightful although opinions presented are biased. The problem is HOW the content is presented. It should be more scripted to relieve learners of having to listen to all of verbal cliches and uptalking.
