    Firearm and Public Health Seminar

    Check it out everyone's favourites.

    Firearms & public health, Summer School, University of Otago, Wellington, University of Otago, New Zealand

    Wednesday 14 February 2018

    Firearms policy is often hotly-contested. How can we find common ground? International and local speakers will explore and debate the public policy and other aspects of firearms in Aotearoa/ New Zealand and our region.

    Owning firearms is common in New Zealand: estimates range from one to three million firearms in our population of 4.8 million. Firearm safety is an issue in public health because of gun-shot deaths and injuries and other health effects; some groups are more vulnerable than others. Numerous community and business groups and government agencies, such as the Police, have an interest in the importation, sale, use and safety of firearms. The diversity of the groups can make it challenging to find common ground. How are current firearms policies working and how might likely future directions affect health, safety and well-being? A revitalised public discussion about firearms is needed; this symposium is a timely contribution

    Topics covered
    The firearms scene in New Zealand, injury prevention and firearms safety training, issues of debate including licensing of owners and registration of firearms, gun culture, public health issues – is lead an issue?, Environmental issues, including hunting, among others. Recent research from University of Otago will be reported.

    Style of course
    This is a symposium-style course, which will include discussion. There will also be a workshop session in which participants will consider policy options for the future.

    Who should attend?
    People interested in public health and firearms, staff from central and local government agencies concerned with firearms, the environment and health, media workers wanting to an update on firearms issues.

    Teaching staff

    Marie Russell, University of Otago, Wellington - on preliminary results of recent research about firearms policy
    Nicole McKee, Firearms Safety Specialists NZ Limited (FSS NZ) - on firearms safety training and related issues

    and others to be confirmed.

    maybe we should contribute to a fund so a few of the more articulate people on the forum could attend to put a logical and unskewed point of view to the meeting .

    More specifically, just the ones who get their ticket paid for them by their institutions.

    I wonder if Chaz Forsyth of Dunedin will be invited to speak? Will someone email this to him?

    "Gun Culture" "Therapy Culture"

    This speaker will speak on "Gun Culture".

    With all respect for her, she's probably just been asked to do a wee filler talk and felt unable to say no. But unless it's all about sex (going by her previous work - read at the bottom) she won't be providing an expert opinion:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_gun_cultures

    Opener of Wikipedia article on Global Gun Cultures (as opposed to specifically US Gun Culture):

    "Gun cultures are found around the world, and evidence various attitudes towards guns in such places as the United States, Canada, Israel, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Yemen and Pakistan. Among the most studied and discussed global gun cultures is that of the gun culture in the United States.
    Normally, gun culture is predominant in countries that have a strong traditional outdoor culture."

    As a general point, gun culture and gun politics overlap.

    Or just ignore totally it.

    Any attempt to disrupt either the seminar itself or the speaker's entries to the country will only give the seminar and speakers publicity further than the couple of hundred people who know about it now.

    They would like nothing more than attempts to disrupt or influence the seminar so they can claim to be under attack by gun owners.

    We have Nicole McKee there, so she is one of the good guys (gals)... but heavily waited towards extremist anti-gun liberals...
