broadcast After Newtown programming starting February 18. The
week-long PBS special addresses issues such as access to guns and the politics
of gun laws; mental illness in young adults; the science of detecting violent
impulses; and how communities react to tragedy. The programming features
contributions from PBS NewsHour, FRONTLINE, Washington Week with Gwen Ifill,
Need to Know, NOVA, and more.
We have over 30,000 firearm deaths per year, of which a third are
homicides. Why? Is it easy access to guns? The violence we view as
entertainment? Or the attention it receives from media? What do we need
to do as a community to decrease violence?
