This thesis set out to determine whether the Supreme Court’s abolishment of Washington D.C.’s Firearms Control Regulations Act handgun ban in 2008 had any impact on the city’s violent gun crime rates. Using an interrupted time series design, analysis of FBI Uniform Crime Report monthly data revealed no statistically significant association between the removal of the FCRA’s handgun band and decreasing gun violence in Washington D.C. from 1998 to 2015.
