Many competing lenses frame the primary causes or drivers of the unique and multi-faceted problem of gun violence in the U.S., lenses that invoke perspectives on crime, race, mental health, immigration, and other contentious issues. Moreover, the topic of gun violence results in extremely heated, bitter, and politically-divisive policy debates. This will be a moderated discussion with a panel of experts who have competing views on how best to frame or define the problem of gun violence and priority policy solutions.
