Evaluating Gun Policy: Effects on Crime and Violence
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungPolicymakers have tried to combat gun-related violence and crime in various ways: including sentence enhancements, restricting access, and banning certain models and designs. Yet far too little is currently known about the efficacy of these policies. This book sheds light on what works by presenting rigorous empirical evaluations of a variety of current policies.
