Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 2

Discuss three factors that are contributing to lethal violence. Using the Problem Analysis Triangle (introduced in Week Two), discuss three potential initiatives to counter gun violence. What are examples of initiatives outside the criminal justice system (i.e., law enforcement, courts, and corrections) that can impact crime and criminal issues?
