How Should We Prevent Mass Shootings In Our Community?

Pizza and refreshments provided.

Conducted by University of Hartford Hillyer College Communication 110 Students.

According to the National Issues Forum Institute, "The tragic attacks in Orlando, Florida, San Bernardino, California, [Las Vegas, Nevada and Sutherland Springs, Texas] and other places have raised concerns among many people across the nation. Other violent episodes, such as a teenager who was gunned down after returning home from the president’s inauguration, have also drawn attention. While mass shootings are infrequent, they may be increasing. Each event has devastating effects on the entire community.

Overall, the United States has become safer in recent years. Yet mass shooters target innocent people indiscriminately, often in locales where people ordinarily (and rightly) feel safe—movie theaters, college campuses, schools. How can we stop these violent acts and ensure that people feel safe in their homes and communities?"

Our discussion will focus on three options for addressing this problem.
