Gun Debate Continues, But Data Still Lacking
Since the Newtown shootings last December 14, America has had a long and very heated conversation about guns and violence.
Lost in the aftermath of this, and other mass shootings, are two realities: the gun debate we just had has little to do with the reality of gun violence in America; and handguns are used in suicide and family violence far more than mass murders. In urban areas, there’s a daily drumbeat of gun-related crime that never grabs the headlines.
Join us for a conversation that uses hard numbers and personal stories to talk about guns in America.
