About the Episode
In recent years, the United States has accounted for nearly three-quarters of the world’s mass shootings and 46 percent of all private gun ownership worldwide—more than 10 times its share of the global population. University of Sydney Professor Phillip Alpers joins a special live edition of Deep Dish to discuss how other nations have tried to prevent mass shootings and firearm homicides, how successful those attempts have been, and what the United States can learn from other countries’ approaches to gun violence.
