NPR’s Michel Martin discusses solutions to gun violence with a panel of experts who work on the issue.



And now we’re going to bring in other voices to talk about their solutions to gun violence in America. Joining us now are Thomas Abt. He’s a researcher who studies gun violence. His most recent book is “Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences Of Urban Violence — And A Bold New Plan For Peace In The Streets.”

Thomas Abt, thank you so much for joining us once again.

THOMAS ABT: Pleasure to be with you.

MARTIN: Kris Brown is the president of Brady – that’s an organization that aims to reduce gun violence in America.

Kris Brown, thank you so much for joining us as well.

KRIS BROWN: Thank you.

MARTIN: We’re also joined by Reverend Rob Schenck. He’s an evangelical pastor. He’s based here in Washington, D.C. He published a book last year titled “Costly Grace: An Evangelical Minister’s Rediscovery Of Faith, Hope, And Love.” And in it, he argues that Christians – especially those who identify as pro-life – should also embrace gun control as a faith issue – or gun safety measures, I should say.

Reverend Schenck, welcome back to you as well.

ROB SCHENCK: Thank you.
