Why can’t we fix gun violence?

My friend in New Zealand called the other day, and the first thing he asked: “What’s going on over there?”  Good question, and part of what he was talking about was our inability to do anyhing meaningful about gun violence, despite the huge amount of publicity that has accompanied evens in the last couple of years: mass shootings, police shootings of black men, “terrorist” attacks …

The NPR show “On the Media” had at this question this week, and pieced together a series of separate ideas into a coherent story that persuasively lays out why things are the way they are, and how they might be changed.  One of those radio shows that has you sitting in your car after you arrive where you’re going.

I think it partly answers my New Zealand friends’ incredulous questions.

Common Sense – On The Media.
