Professor James Alan Fox & doctoral student Emma Fridel recently shared their new findings on school gun violence with News at Northeastern. In the article, they analyzed data collected by USA Today, the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Report, Congressional Research Service, Gun Violence Archive, Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries, Mother Jones, Everytown for Gun Safety, and a NYPD report on active shooters to examine the prevalence of school shootings in the United States. Not only did they find that shooting incidents involving students have been declining since the 90s, but also the number of children killed in school shootings in the 90s was four times as much as it is today. Professor Fox and Ms. Fridel then analyze the potential policy implications of suggested gun control responses.
