Over a 100,000 people are injured or killed by gun violence in the US each year. That’s according to a report commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control.
The report recommends a “public health approach” to preventing future harm and injuries.
On this week’s Eastern Standard, our topic is “preventing gun violence.” Is it through tougher and more restrictive laws or education and firearms training.
Guests for this show: Pia Carusone, Executive Director of Americans for Responsible Solutions; Richard Feldman, Executive Director of the Independent Firearms Owners Association; and Pat Howard, firearms instructor with the Ky. Department of Criminal Justice Training.
