Alcohol misuse as a risk factor for gun violence
This webinar will be facilitated by Joshua Horwitz and Silvia Villarreal from the Center for Gun Violence Solutions at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Consortium for Risk-Based Firearm Policy. Alcohol use and gun violence are leading causes of preventable injury and death in the United States. These issues are most deadly when they intersect with one another. This webinar will discuss research and policy recommendations from the report, Alcohol Misuse and Gun Violence: An Evidence-Based Approach, pointing to alcohol misuse as a risk factor for all forms of gun violence, including homicides and suicides, confirming the urgent need to adopt evidence-based policies that address this troubling link.
