An initiative focused on international collaboration
The Center for Psychological Gun Research is a loosely affiliated network of academic scientists who study the psychological causes and consequences of gun ownership and gun use. Its members seek to develop theories that can inform individual responsibility and safety-oriented decision making. They also seek to gain general insights into human beings’ ancient psychological connection to weapons. The researchers have lived and worked across North America, Europe, and Israel, and they study the psychology of guns in free societies across the world.
