With gun violence at an all-time high, politicians, law enforcement, and communities are wrestling with how best to address the unrelenting stream of mass shootings, suicides, domestic violence, and gang related shootings. The panel will focus on the many policies and practices being proposed to reduce gun violence, how effective any of the proposed solutions are, and what the tradeoffs would be in regards to rights, budgets, and privacy.
