KEYNOTE: American Society for Bioethics and Humanities Annual Conference, “American Firearms and Mass Shootings: Mental Illness, Politics, and Policies,”

Anaheim, California

Jonathan Metzl addresses four assumptions that frequently arise in the aftermath of mass-shootings in the United States:
(1) that mental illness causes gun violence, (2) that a psychiatric diagnosis can predict
gun crime before it happens, (3) that shootings are the deranged acts of mentally ill loners, and (4) that gun control won’t prevent another Newtown.
