185: Fighting Back: Responding to Mass Shootings Like Buffalo and Uvalde
A church. A grocery store. A school.
In the last 14 days, the nation has seen a number of high-profile shootings, all the while "every day" gun violence continued in communities across the US. If you're scared, angry, frustrated, or even just numb, hosts Kelly and JJ understand — they feel the same way. To discuss the shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, and ways to respond, they're joined by Dr. Steve Albrecht, Nancy Kislin, and Robert Schentrup. Dr. Steve Albrecht is an author and expert in workplace and school violence prevention and library safety and security; Nancy Kislin is an author and expert in helping parents, educators and communities cultivate resilience in kids; and Robert Schentrup is a gun violence survivor and the organizing manager for Team Enough.
