It has been nearly a week since the horrific massacre of children and teachers in Newtown, Connecticut. The disbelief hasn't faded; tears haven't dried. We may never know why or what, if anything, would have prevented it. The tragedy has given rise to dual conversations in this country -- one about gun control and another about mental health care, particularly for those who may act violently. We invite you to engage in those conversations with us on the Sound of Ideas, Thursday at 9:00 a.m.
Community/Human Interest, Courts/Crime - Fire/Law Enforcement
Lori O’Neill, gun violence prevention expert
Jim Reese, Buckeye Firearms Association & Ohioans for Concealed Carry
Dan Flannery, Director, Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education, Case Western Reserve University
