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