What happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School was an unspeakable tragedy. There have been 16 mass shootings this year in the United States alone that have risen to the level of national news, as well as many mass shootings that don't ever make it into the national dialogue. In fact, each day 34 people are murdered with guns in our nation. This is not okay. It's time to improve our gun safety laws.
On this show we talk about turning this trend around, about gun violence prevention, and about protecting our children and communities.
*Special guests include: Lori Haas, parent of VA Tech survivor, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG); Cliff Schecter, best-selling author and gun violence prevention expert; Ashley Boyd, MomsRising; Byron Hurt, award winning filmmaker; and Dean Baker -Co-Director Center for Economic and Policy Research.
