mass shooting

On this week’s Issues and Ideas, we talk gun safety and gun violence. As of Monday, December 9, 2019, there have been been 393 mass shootings across the United States and more than 55,000 acts of gun violence. We speak with two Central Coast community members with differing perspectives on the issues surrounding gun violence, gun safety and the 2nd Amendment. Dr. Bill Pummer of the San Luis Obispo Sportsman Association and Morro Bay city councilmember and Women’s March SLO founder Dawn Addis join host Brian Reynolds in the KCBX studio.

We're back! After a month-long hiatus, KCBX's weekly news magazine returns. 

Briana Willson

Among those who survived the recent mass shootings in the U.S., some relied on the kindness of strangers in the aftermath. KCBX news intern Briana Willson was one of those people. She was at the Gilroy Garlic Festival at the end of July when a gunman opened fire.
