smaller PTT logoAs part of the signature SP2 Penn Top 10 initiative, Susan Sorenson of University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice takes a look beyond good guys versus bad guys in the ever-expanding U.S. gun policy debate.

“Since there’s no certain, obvious way to distinguish ‘good’ people from ‘bad’ people, where should gun policy draw the line concerning who is legally able to obtain, carry, and use a firearm? We have not adequately discussed this question.”

The gun policy debate is just one of the many crucial social justice and policy issues analyzed and addressed in the “SP2 Penn Top 10 Social Justice & Policy Issues for the 2016 Presidential Election.”

Exclusive content and essays on the “top 10” issues is available now on Also available is the new SP2 Penn Top 10 workbook, a dynamic, user-friendly publication that features all abridged essays, key statistics, policy recommendations and voter resources to inform conversations and decisions leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
