David J. Bordua Professor Emeritus

Kleck is an expert on gun control, deterrence, crime control and violence. Some of his recent research has found that higher general gun ownership rates reduce homicide rates, probably because the violence-reducing effects of guns among noncriminal victims and prospective victims outweigh the violence-increasing effects of guns among criminals.
