S3E15 / Gun Violence in America / The Big Australian Buyback IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH with Dr. Celine Gounder

Australia shares a similar history and culture to our own. But yet after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996, Australians came to see the need for gun regulation very differently. Australia’s newly elected conservative prime minister at the time passed sweeping gun reform. How did that real-world experiment play out? What happens when you reduce the number of guns in a country nationwide? Guests: Rebecca Peters, former Chair of the Australian National Coalition for Gun Control, and former Director of the International Action Network on Small Arms; Philip Alpers, Adjunct Associate Professor of Public Health at the University of Sydney; Emeritus Professor of Public Health at the University of Sydney; Andrew Leigh, Labor member of the Australian House of Representatives and former Professor of Economics at Australian National University; and Roland Browne, Vice President of Gun Control Australia. | www.insicknessandinhealthpodcast.com
