Each year, more than 20,000 children and youth under age 20 are killed or injured by firearms in the United States.1 Thousands of young people are shot by peers, family members, or strangers, either intentionally or unintentionally. Thousands more use guns to attempt suicide, and these attempts prove successful more often than suicides attempted by other means.2 Countless other children and youth, though not injured or killed themselves, are survivors of gun violence, scarred by the effects of such violence in their homes, schools, or communities. Although children and youth are often victimized by gun violence, they also can become perpetrators, using guns to kill or maim others.
What is the answer to keeping guns out of the hands of our children?
Let's talk about it Wednesday night at 8pm on DPRADIOXL.
On September 1st, 1774, General Thomas Gage, Royal Governor of The Massachusetts Bay Colonies, responded to the protests of the Massachusetts Bay Colonists, who were upset by years of opression and the implementation of "The Intolerable Acts", by staging a raid to remove the gunpowder stored in a powder storage magazine.
Gage had been sent a note from William Brattle, the leader of the Provincial Miitia, that the colonists and towns had removed all of their powder, and all that was left ws the "Kings" powder. Gage decided to seize the powder from the magazine, near what is now Somerville, to keep it from falling into the hands of the militias.
The raid was a success for Gage in one way. He was able to seize the powder, as well as two field pieces from the neighboring town of Cambridge and returned with all of the powder and cannon to Boston. But what Gage did not realize was the effect the event would have on the colonists.
The raid galvanized the colonists in a way Gage had not expected. By the end of the day on the 2nd, there were reports of tens of thousands of armed colonisits heading for Boston. Intent on joining what they thought was a war in progress. Gage postponed an additional scheduled powder raid after this, but not for long. He began attempting to raid additional powder storage locations several more times, but because of intelligence gathering operations put in place by the colonists, Gage did not have another success with his raids, and eventually, the policy of powder raids lead to the events at Lexington and Concord.
Instead of deterring the colonists, General Gages raids were actually training the colonists in how to respond to the raids.
Join me tonight to discuss the Powder Raids and what effect they had on the colonists, and how they lead to the first battle of The American Revolutionary War.
Hope to see you there!

Dr. Roger A. Mitchell has made it his personal crusade to put an end to the senseless violence that consumes far too many sons and brothers, daughters and sisters, and that lays waste to entire communities. Named by Mayor Vincent Gray in Washington, DC as Chief Medical Examiner earlier this year after a stint as Regional Medical Examiner in New Jersey, Dr. Mitchell is breathing life into his unique profession of forensic pathology by sharing vital information with communities and invigorating a movement that had lost its focus. He talks to us about his heavy charge as Chief Medical Examiner, about his mission to save Black lives, and about his forthcoming memoir, The Price of Freedom: A Son's Journey.

While we have clear data on murders from gun violence, no one seems to know how many Americans are shot – and survive – every year. In fact, the government’s own numbers seem to conflict on the matter.
How can this be? And why has no one tried to resolve the difference?
Lois Beckett explains that doctors and researchers have been pushing for clear numbers on gun injuries since 1989. “But what’s happened over that time is the politics of gun research, the politics of guns in America, are so divided and so fierce that even the effort to count the number of people injured by guns is incredibly political,” she says.
Tonight on the Curent Issues Show we will be talking about Eric Cantor to step down from being a majority leader. We are also talking about the G.O.P and how being to far right is now considered moderate. Finally we are talking about how President Obama said this nation "should be ashamed" over the gun violence.
