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.

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.
We are going to explore gun violence in Chicago and other places in the US. Is gun violence genocide? Is it a conspiracy? If the answers are jobs and education how do we accomplish this....the time for talk is done!!! What do we do with the children at the border and the other millions of Immigrants!!! Are we really picking on President Obama worse than we picked on Bill Clinton or George Bush.
Join us to weigh in on the Gun Amendment coming to a ballot near you (in Missouri). Some people trust that it must be good because the legislature put it on the ballot. Others are saying, "Not so fast". What does this amendment actually accomplish? Listen or call in to weigh in if you have an interest in the Constitution or guns.
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes writer/director/actor Reggie "Rock" Bythewood to Conversations LIVE to discuss not just his gift of creativity but what it's been like over the years to share it with the world. The two will also discuss the new movie GUN HILL starring Larenz Tate.
Host Dave Bourne and co host Pete Murtha will discuss the natural right to self defense and to own a firearm. The agenda of billionaires like Bloomberg and others that feel they have the right to limit and control... what you can possess and what you can use to defend yourself. As well as the stockpiling and arming or various federal agencies whose main function is not law enforcement. And how the "anti gun" people seem to be fine with the police and the state arming to the teeth but want to take away guns for people that aren't in the government.
The show promotes and discusses the ideas of freedom and liberty for all people without the partisan politics. Exposing the government mafia that rules only by threat of force without concent. I support consentual voluntary relationships. I don't want someone else to represent me, when I know what's best for me and can represent myself. I am not a republican, I am not a democrat. I'm not a liberal, I'm not a conservative. I will not allow you to define me, or force me to join one of your gangs. I am an individual and I believe in freedom and liberty for all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation as all human beings have a right to freedom and liberty. I will stand up to government oppression and do what I can to educate the public on the illusion and or lack of true freedom in America.
Facts will be shared to find the truth regarding how strict gun laws have an impact on communities. Does allowing concealed carry adjust crime rates. What causes mass shootings, and how can we best prevent them. We'll go over past shooting events. This show is set for 90 minutes this week!

75 mass shootings since Sandy Hook and counting ... What can the mental health profession do to help deter this scourge of national mass murders ?
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.
