June 5, 2018 – Faith & Society: Guns In Schools
with Angie Gallo, David Moran, and Mark Pafford
Season 11, Episode 23
The NRA is leading the charge for “guns everywhere” – how about you? What do you think? On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, guns in school, and the flood of violence and bloodshed ever before us. The gun violence archive reports that the number of deaths from gun violence – this excludes suicide — from 2014 has increased each year – by 2017 the increase stood at 30% above the deaths from gun violence in 2014. This includes an increase in the number of children murdered each year, and a trend of increase in the number of those killed in mass shootings. While our government refuses to consider this a public health issue, more and more Americans fall victim to gun violence in this country. For some the answer is more guns — guns everywhere — including guns in school. We will ask our guests today about this. We will also talk about it from a faith perspective. Our conversation with Ms. Angie Gallo of the Florida PTA, Mr. David Thomas Moran from the organization, Gays Against Guns, and Mr. Mark Pafford from Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence – that’s on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
