College students, Perception, College gun violence
College gun violence has been one of our nation’s most forefront issues in recent years. The present meta-analysis reviewed studies reporting college students’ perceptions about school/college gun violence in order to summarize the total effect and direction of these research findings. There were only two studies identified for this research topic: Study A and Study B. Combining the effect sizes from both studies could not be accomplished because there was not enough data from Study A to calculate the correlation coefficient(r) or standardized mean difference (SMD). The summary of the results of the two studies as a metaanalysis was more a descriptive analysis. With the exception of the more conservative study participants, participants in both studies felt the most significant variable in the occurrence of school/college gun violence was the mental health of the individual perpetrator.
