Graham Younger – Guns, Guns and more Guns: Is This Really Where We’re Headed?

Aired Thursday, October 3, 2019 at 12:00 PM PST / 3:00 PM EST

Due to the rise in mass shootings, many schools are now doing shooter drills in addition to tornado, hurricane and fire drills. What impact is this having on students’ state of mind? And why do some officials insist on bringing in more guns as a means to combat future shooters? Prior to the surge in mass shootings, guns were more associated with crime, domestic violence and suicide. Now the conversation related to guns has significantly shifted.

Join Jennifer as she discusses this critical issue and the need for gun safety legislation with Graham Younger, Georgia Director for Faith in Public Life.
