Program: Ending Gun Violence
Speaker: Ron Marcus
The United States has a love affair with guns! Unfortunately, we suffer from it daily. The incident at Stoneman HS in Parkland FL is just the latest example. There were thirty-four mass shootings in 2017, killing 26 people and injuring 122 people. Guns were also the method of choice for over 22,000 suicides in 2017. The US has eight times the number of gun deaths than Canada and over 27 times that of Denmark. The question is how do we end gun violence in the US?
