S3E31 / Gun Violence in America / The Gun Violence Prevention Movement / Kristin Goss & Scott Melzer
Play • 30 min

Many social movements—including civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, and environmental protection—have their origins in the 1960s. In the aftermath of the assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK, the NRA joined the American Culture Wars and became the militant gun-rights advocacy organization we know today. But there hasn't been an analogous gun violence prevention movement... at least until now. What changed and why? Guests: Kristin Goss, Professor of Public Policy and Political Science at Duke University and author of Disarmed: The Missing Movement for Gun Control in America; and Scott Melzer, Professor of Sociology at Albion College and author of Gun Crusaders: The NRA’s Culture War. | insicknessandinhealthpodcast.com | glow.fm/insicknessandinhealth | #EndGunViolence #GunViolence #GVP #GunSafety #MentalHealth #MentalIllness #Suicide #HomicideSuicide #FamilyDrama #Family Annihilation #MassShooting #IntimatePartnerViolence #DomesticViolence #EveryTown #MomsDemandAction #MomsDemand #StudentsDemandAction #StudentsDemand #MarchForOurLives #BradyCampaign #FamilyFire #Giffords #ThisIsOurLane #EnoughIsEnough #NeverAgain #NationalEmergency #MedHum #MedHumChat #NarrativeMedicine #HealthHumanities #SocialMedicine #SocialJustice #SDoH
