Yet another mass shooting has taken place in the United States and this time it was at an elementary school. Yet, the government continues to do nothing. In this special double episode, David Rothkopf and Kavita Patel talk with Laurie Garrett about the shooting in Texas as a public health crisis and then later are joined by Mary McCord of Georgetown University to talk about potential legal responses to mass shootings. What can public health tools reveal about the epidemic of mass shootings happening in the United States? How has the growth of conspiracy theories impacted these shootings and public health more broadly? What can we do to stop the violence? The answer to these vitally important questions in this thoughtful conversation. Don’t miss it.
