À propos du cours

The best available evidence shows that comprehensive background checks by themselves are insufficient at reducing gun violence, but strong bodies of research demonstrate that states with comprehensive background checks coupled with firearm purchaser licensing, or permit-to-purchase laws, have significantly fewer firearm-involved homicides, fatal mass shootings, and suicides. Additionally, public opinion polling research consistently finds that 75% or more of U.S. adults support firearm purchaser licensing laws and 60% or more of gun owners support these policies. This Teach-Out event includes a general overview of firearm licensing policies and evidence of their effectiveness, as well as materials on the social context of licensing, including public opinion polling and differences across geographic areas and groups. Over the next four weeks, you are invited to join us as we explore this topic together through brief lessons, weekly discussions, and call-to-action activities for you to undertake in your own community. We would also like to acknowledge our funders, the Johns Hopkins Center for Teaching and Learning and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Without their generous contributions, this Teach-Out would not be possible and we are so very grateful for their support....

This series of lectures is not an academic course. It is instead nothing more than a very long political commercial spouting Michael Bloomberg's anti-second amendment stance. Nothing in this course is supported even remotely by data or evidence. Don't waste your time. You'll get to see plenty of Bloomberg commercials now that he's spending $millions on his presidential advertising.

I'm especially disappointed in Coursera for even allowing this in their curriculum as a "course of study." Coursera generally has excellent academic courses to offer. This "course" drastically erodes Coursera's credibility and brand image.

Biased and uninformative

Propaganda because it contained no opposing views.
