Province of British Columbia  

The tragic mass shooting that left more than 50 people dead in matter of minutes in Las Vegas has sparked controversy and outrage over the gun violence America faces as a country on a daily basis. As data from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that nearly 100 Americans are killed with guns on an average day, our guest argues this is not necessarily a political issue but a public health threat. He offers insights on how gun violence can be tackled from a public health perspective and explains what can be done to reduce deaths in mass shootings.
