CRJ 305 week 5 DQ 2


Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 2

Gun Violence


   According to Robinson, when we compare America to countries around the world,   America does not have a high rate of crime, but has one of the highest rates   of lethal violence (2012). 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?

  Your initial post must be a minimum of 250 words in length. Support your post   with examples from your required reading material and /or other scholarly   sources, and provide in-text citation in APA style.  

  Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Review the   initial posts of your classmates. They discussed three factors that   contribute to lethal violence. Select one of these factors and discuss what   the implications and consequences of the factor are on social justice in   society. Does this factor enhance or detract from criminal justice?
