David Hemenway, a professor of health policy at the Harvard School of Public Health, talked about his book Private Guns, Public Health, published by University of Michigan Press. Professor Hemenway’s book treats the issue of gun violence as a consumer safety and public health problem, and as such, advocates a public-health approach to reducing the rates of gun casualties. He suggests a number of different reforms, which he refers to as “proactive, not reactive,” and compares his methods of reform to those public safety efforts made in the automobile industry over the past twenty years. Following his remarks he answered questions from the audience. close
