美国的枪支管制和风险研究

此为2012年的视频! 2012 年 12 月 14 日,康涅狄格州纽敦的桑迪胡克小学,一名枪手杀害了 20 名幼儿和 6 名成年人。 如果不清楚地此类事件发生的原因以及如何避免这些事件,未来的行动只能建立在不知情的猜测而不是证据的基础上。可悲的是,美国处理枪支安全和控制的主要研究机构在1996年被禁止。疾病控制和预防中心在其法案中仍有一个条款--"迪基法案"--规定如下 : "疾病控制和预防中心为伤害预防和控制提供的资金不得全部或部分用于倡导或促进枪支管制" 这项规定现在扩展到所有通过美国卫生和人类安全部资助的研究。 资料来源和补充资源 (英文): United States gun facts, figures and the law: http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/united-states CDC Fastfacts: Homicide: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/homicide.htm Who calls the shots: Nature 488:129, August 8 2012: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v488/n7410/full/488129a.htmle.com/nature/journal/v488/n7410/full/488129a.html 点击这里查看更多视频:https://alugha.com/RiskBites
