Talking Gun Control

On the Today Show, I discussed my academic paper (coauthored with Christine Neill) on the effect of the Australian gun buyback on reducing firearms deaths.

I also spoke on The Drum about the economics and politics of gun law reform.

And on A Current Affair about the fact that a culture of sports shooting can co-exist with laws that restrict the number of guns in Australian homes.

Here's the podcast of a 12min interview on ABC774 with John Morrison, and shorter interviews on 2cc with Mark Parton and ABC666 with Ross Solly (a caller to that program questioned the US gun ownership rate - here's the data).

Other coverage in the Canberra Times, SMH, ABC, Quartz and Washington Post.
