New research regarding juvenile delinquency, adult firearm access, and crime outcomes
Tuesday, November 23, 2021, 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM
The Joyce Foundation presents this conversation as part of its Lunch & Learn series.
Adults in the U.S. who committed a criminal offense when they were minors may be subject to differing age-based restrictions on their access to firearms depending on the nature and severity of their juvenile offense; their age at the time of the offense; their state’s laws regarding firearm eligibility and expungement of juvenile records.
Researchers will preview the results of an ongoing study examining the rationale for and effectiveness of such laws; describe the relevant statutory landscape in the 50 states; and provide commentary and discuss implications of this research for policy and law, which have been challenged in court in recent years.
Presenters will include Jeffrey Swanson, MA, PhD, Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine and Faculty Affiliate of the Center for Firearms Law at Duke Law School; Josie Caves Sivaraman, PhD, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of Medicine; Brett Gardner, PhD, Researcher, Institute of Law, Psychiatry and Public Policy, University of Virginia Law School; Darrell Miller, JD, Melvin G. Shimm Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Intellectual Life at Duke Law School, Co-Director of the Duke Center for Firearms Law.
