The Effect of Stricter State-level Firearm Legislation on Youth and Female Suicides

Placeholder Show Content


For her capstone project, Alanna Flores wrote a fascinating research paper that considered the effect of fourteen categories of state firearm laws enacted by different states at different times from 1991 through 2018. Her research further analyzed the causal connection between firearm laws, specifically background checks, child laws, trafficking regulation, possession for those convicted of domestic violence crimes, and gun-inflicted suicide rates of women and children. She hopes her work in the subject of firearm legislature will further an understanding of how laws work to preserve livelihood and consider the effectiveness of the government in protecting its people from harm, especially its most vulnerable communities.
