Gun control debate needs to focus on more than mass shootings, president of UConn Against Gun Violence says

Following the shooting in Parkland, Florida, which killed 17 last week, there has been a renewed call for improved gun control laws by some including a University of Connecticut student leader who said the focus of the debate needs to broaden.

President of UConn Against Gun Violence Elizabeth Charash said that while she believes weak gun laws and the culture of violence promoted for young men were contributing causes for the Parkland shooting, the dialogue needs to shift away from its almost exclusive focus on mass shootings if the nation is to ever achieve comprehensive and effective gun control laws.
