This week my guest on the Campbell Conversations is Robert Spitzer. He's a political science professor at the State University of New York at Cortland, and a national expert on the politics of gun control.
In the wake of the Newtown killings, both the nation and New York State are
reconsidering gun policy. Governor Cuomo recently made additional restrictions
on guns a featured element in his State of the State address, and it appears as
though a deal on new legislation may be crafted within a week.
Spitzer and I discuss what kinds of policy approaches are most likely to help
address the problem of gun violence, and what proposed changes are most likely
to actually get passed--in Albany and in Washington.
One thing our conversation has prompted me to think more about is how the
different approaches toward reducing gun violence compare with other realms of
life where violent injury and death occur. There are at least three
over-arching ways to see the problem--focusing on what people do with
guns; focusing on what kinds of people have access to guns; and
focusing on the availability of different kinds of guns.
There are interesting connections--and disconnections--between how we might
think of guns and the gun violence problem, and how we think about alcohol and
the drunk-driving problem, smart phones and the texting-driving problem, or
personal computers and the child pornography problem. There are both
connections and disconnections in terms of prevention, and in how we deal with
appropriate interventions after a person has been shown to engage in bad
behavior. For example, convicted drunk drivers sometimes have their driver's licenses taken away, but they are never forbidden from purchasing more alcohol, or from drinking. People who crash their cars while texting and cause injury or death to others are not prevented from owning smart phones. Child pornographers can continue to purchase and own personal computers.
It gets complicated, and Spitzer offers some interesting thoughts in parsing out this

Yes. America is also the rate of violent crime involving guns is unusually high among wealthy nations. However ominous thing is that, most of the violence has gunpoint not related to the causes for mental illness.
