Gun ownership rates in the United States have reached unprecedented levels. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans have purchased firearms, many of them becoming gun-owners for the first time.

David Studdert, Stanford Vice Provost and Dean of Research and professor in Health Policy and Law, and Maya Rossin-Slater, Stanford associate professor in Health Policy, will delve into the effects of introducing firearms into homes and the long-term consequences of school gun violence on students' mental health, education, and future economic prospects. Join us as we explore their insightful research findings in this crucial discussion. 



David M. Studdert is a leading expert in the fields of health law and empirical legal research. His scholarship explores how the legal system influences the health and well-being of populations.
