63 Americans die every day due to firearm suicide. These people are not mere statistics, but are beloved family members, friends, and loved ones. Today, hosts Kelly and JJ talk to two people who lost ones they love--Adam Friedman, a Team Enough Executive Council member, and Khary Penebaker, a DNC member and Board Member at Everytown. Adam lost his grandfather, and Khary lost his mother. Together, we discuss what everyone should know about firearm suicide, what it's like to be a survivor left behind, and initiatives like Brady's End Family Fire that seek to prevent these tragedies.
