Gun Violence In America: Exploring Practical Policy Solutions

Photo Credit: modernrockstar on FlickrDecember 3, 2015 – Segment 1

Yesterday was a tumultuous day – early in the morning one person was killed and several more were injured in a mass shooting in Savannah, Georgia. And then someone was shot and killed outside of a health clinic in Houston, Texas. And just 10 miles from the San Bernardino health clinic in which 14 were people killed and approximately 20 people were injured; there were reports that shots had been fired near a Target store. At this time, there have been more mass shootings this year than there have been days in the year, approximately five per day. Joining guest host Dr. Kaye Whitehead to talk about this very briefly is Jenifer Pauliukonis, the Legislative Director for Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence and a mother of two boys who got involved in gun policy after the Sandy Hook mass shooting.
