Graduate Student Michael Sierra-Arévalo’s work on gun ownership was recently featured in The Trace. The research demonstrates how offenders use guns for protection when their perceptions of law enforcement legitimacy are low. Sierra-Arévalo’s work was published under the title ”Legal Cynicism and Protective Gun Ownership Among Active Offenders in Chicago” in the journal Cogent Social Sciences. Congratulations Michael!
