Facts about mental illness and crime

Over at Volokh Conspiracy, a piece by my co-author Dave Kopel about an upcoming Howard University Law Review article.
This year’s Howard Law Journal symposium challenged participants to search for ideas that can reduce criminal gun violence, and do so while respecting Second Amendment rights. My contribution is an article on mental illness and crime. The co-authors are historian Clayton Cramer, who is the author of the book My Brother Ron: A Personal and Social History of the Deinstitutionalization of the Mentally Ill, and Dr. Carolyn Dobbins, a psychotherapist who is author of the book What a Life Can Be: One Therapist’s Take on Schizo-Affective Disorder. The draft article is available here.


  1. Clayton,
