Since the Aurora, Colorado shooting, I keep asking myself: when did violence became so normal? It pops up everywhere in American culture. We feel excited it by it when we see it on a screen. We feel proud of it when we see it in uniform, and angered by it when we see it near our children.

On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about the recent mass shooting in Colorado and how we should be responding.  There have been 60 mass shootings in the United States since January 2011.  President Obama believes the solution is in better enforcement of existing gun laws.   How have leaders of other nations responded to similar incidents of gun violence?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here. What could we do, as a society, to prevent gun violence?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
