(50 marks) QUESTION TWO: FIREARMS VIOLENCE ‘Criminologists are mainly interested in two broad aspects in relation to firearms: the link between the availability of (and access to) firearms and violent criminal behaviour and/or violent death; and the impact of government firearms control interventions on crime (such as the in troduction of legislation and policing action).’ With this quotation in mind write an essay in which you explore what the available criminological research (internationally or locally) tells us about the linkages between access to firearms and violent criminal behaviour and/or the impact of gun control on crime patterns. (50 marks) QUESTION THREE: GANGS AND POLICING As an expert witness in a gang-related court case, write a report outlining the reasons for gang formation in Cape Town. You may give a broad outline or focus on one or several particular aspects of the problem. OR Respond to a request by the Western Cape's Department of Community Safety for ways to combat the gang problem in Cape Town. (You may go beyond your course reading in these suggestions, as long as they are innovative and moderately possible to implement). (50 marks) QUESTION FOUR: STATE RESPONSES TO CRIME “Urban policies and community strategies in pursuit of safety and security are more often than not characterised by contradictions and fragmentation.”

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
