lytton finalIn an interview with News 1130 Vancouver, Professor Timothy Lytton discussed why mass shootings are unlikely to lead to a major shift in gun control politics in the United States. Both in the legislature and the general public, there are strong opinions on both sides, the protection of the right to own weapons on one hand and the need for gun control on the other. A debate that has been around since the founding of the nation, major change isn’t likely to happen soon, he said.


Timothy D. Lytton is a Distinguished University Professor and Professor of Law at Georgia State University College of Law and a member of the Center for Law, Health & Society.  His expertise is in the public policy implications of tort litigation. Lytton is the editor of Suing the Gun Industry: A Battle at the Crossroads of Gun Control and Mass Torts (2005).
