TITLE:   Common Ground
Stop Handgun Violence
DATE:   02/24/2011
DESCRIPTION:   On the second half of the show, host Steve Tompkins talks with Stop Handgun Violence founder and chairman John Rosenthal about the importance of gun law legislation. Stop Handgun Violence is a non–profit organization committed to the prevention of gun violence through education, public awareness, effective law enforcement and common sense gun laws. Statistics show that a child or teen in the United States dies every three hours from firearms and 150 are shot with 79 people killed by firearms in America every day. More Americans were killed by gun violence than by war in the 20th Century. What can you do? Become educated. Watch the show and get involved.
