Up In Arms: Kids & Guns
On September 6, 2018, American Public Square and KCUR 89.3 presented “Up In Arms: Kids & Guns,” where panelists from both sides of the aisle explored the causes of gun-related deaths among children and teens, discussed the dramatic increase in recent years, talked about policy and education programs around firearms, and more.
Professional research librarians collected suggested readings on the subject.

“The goal of this paper is to describe the options that are currently available for schools. An analysis of the key components of various approaches in terms of their potential positive and negative effects can assist in the selection of policies, programs, and procedures while we wait for evaluations to be conducted.”
