    Does the High Rate of Gun Violence in America Reflect Our Values?

    in Parents

    Today our guest is Attorney Mike McLively from the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. We will discuss the complexity of gun laws in the US.

    The latest manifestation of this "hot" topic is campus life and guns -- "lawmakers in 10 states are busy adapting the issue of campus sexual assault to the campaign to arm college students". (http://nyti.ms/1D2uR1S)

    How do we understand the prevalence of gun violence in America?
    60% of the US homicide occur using a firearm. In other gun permeated countries like Finland it is only 19%. United States has the highest gun ownership in the world. (The Washington Post, 12/14/12)

    Is it totally unrealistic to think we can ever become a land without guns such as Japan? Are they smarter than we are? What's the story?

    Mr. Brett A. Scudder hosts Correlation between Mental Health and Gun Violence

    in Lifestyle

    Listen as Mr. Brett A. Scudder hosts a dialog with gun violence victims, survivors and advocated about Correlation between Mental Health and Gun Violence and the human impacts on victims, survivors and communities.


    His focus is to bring people's attention to the mindset of violence that allows one to take a life and the trauma experienced by the victim (if survived), loved ones and community overall. Will be a great dialog. Many people never look at the root cause of the violence, nor do they realize the psychological impacts of it.


    Please share and help to promote the effort.


    Thank You,

    The Crusader Against Gun Violence

    in Education

    Eighty-two people were shot in Chicago over the July 4th weekend. Fourteen of those people died. Most of the victims were Black and Latino men.


    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.


    Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and the President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates racial equity plans and promotes racial equity, particularly in education.

    Gun Violence and Our Youth

    in Entertainment

    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.

    Violence in America: Gun Violence

    in Current Events

    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.
