Jennifer Tucker, founding director of the Center for the Study of Guns & Society (CSGS), was recently interviewed on the Brady podcast in an episode titled, “The Rising Lethality of the Second Amendment.”

Tucker describes her early introduction to guns in popular culture and how she came to study guns as a historian, leading to the establishment of CSGS. “It was clear that there was a need for a place for historians who work on this subject to come together, work and exchange ideas, and identify areas of needed research, and there didn’t exist anything like that.”

Tucker also discusses the impacts of recent court decisions on guns, and debunks common myths and distortions about guns in American history.
