Sanford Professor Kristin Goss was quoted in Indy Week on how the fear of violence has reshaped the face of gun ownership. In New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v.

Goss stated this may encourage other lawsuits against state regulations. Goss also acknowledged, “If nobody was armed, people probably wouldn’t feel like they needed to be armed. Once other people start arming themselves, then you have this kind of counter effect of, you know, ‘The place seems more dangerous, so I need to protect myself.’”
