Bullet wounds go more than skin deep. LJ Punch, M.D., is a trauma surgeon and the founder of the BRIC — the Bullet-Related Injury Clinic in Saint Louis, Mo.. The BRIC is where shooting victims come for wound care and education, help with pain management, care for the emotional and social impact of being shot, and the acknowledgement that their bullet wound could likely have profound spiritual meaning for them, their families, and their communities.They also find a place of warm welcome. "Trauma is a communal injury and must be healed in community," says Dr. Punch. "The medical world is missing out because it's abstracting this one tiny part of it." He says the treatment that's needed to heal a bullet wound is not happening in hospitals.We also talk with Pierre Underwood, who was shot early this year and is recovering from his bullet wound with the help of the staff of the BRIC.

Gun manufacturers are the only industry explicitly protected by federal statute from liability lawsuits. Carmakers and cigarette companies can be taken to court if their products or marketing endanger the public. But a 2005 law called the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (P.L.C.A.A.) has made it very difficult to sue a gunmaker. Jonathan Lowy has. He's the chief counsel and vice-president of legal at Brady, one of the country's oldest advocacy groups against gun violence. Faced with a hostile Supreme Court and a Senate filibuster, Lowy believes civil litigation is a path forward for gun-control advocates. Speaking with Michael Luo, who is this week's guest host and the editor of newyorker.com, Lowy explains his strategy of slowly chipping away at the P.L.C.A.A. to change how guns are made, marketed, and sold.

The joy of summertime in too many Black communities is marred by the prospect of an all too common spike in violent crime. This summer has, unfortunately, not been different, with cities around the nation reeling from an up to 40% increase in murder since 2020. But hope is, at least in theory, on the horizon. From the federal government to big foundations investing in a range of programs deemed "Community Violence Intervention" (CVI) - a suite of programs that promise to bring a "public health" approach to violence prevention. Their objective is to decrease violence and the need to rely on cops. These leave some important questions:What are the assumptions behind these programs? Who benefits from them? What are the limitations of surrounding the issue of urban gun violence to the nonprofit/public health industrial complex?In this episode, Lawrence and Rasheem give a presentation tackling these issues: Discuss the limitations of the mainstream CVI programming, Expose some of the fundamental limitations of their approach, Propose structural interventions into the political economy of Black cities Help solve the root causes of violenceGive practical advise community members can use to ensure CVI programming in their communities reflects the cultural and best practices of African people.Support the show

It has become almost a Monday morning ritual in Central Pennsylvania – the reports of the murders and shootings from over the weekend. The gun violence doesn't just happen on weekends but it seems to be more prevalent on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. It used to be that most shootings occurred late at night or in the early morning hours, but now it's not unusual to hear gunfire in broad daylight or an innocent person being hit in the crossfire or by a stray bullet. Most of the shootings are in the region's cities and most often the victims are young Black men. Dr. Dale Dangleben is the Trauma Medical Director at Penn State Health Holy Spirit Hospital in Cumberland County and he has treated many of these gunshot victims or worked to save their lives before they died.Support WITF: https://www.witf.org/support/give-now/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

After a mass shooting at a school, we tend to hear some of the same "solutions" tossed around: schools should just have one door;buy bulletproof backpacks;arm teachers; andharden schools more broadly.While we know those "solutions" aren't, in fact, solutions to gun violence, they all point to a very serious question: "what can we do to make kids safe, while we fight for gun violence prevention?" To help answer that question, hosts Kelly and JJ are joined by Dr. Jaclyn Schildkraut, an associate professor of criminal justice at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Oswego and the interim executive director for the Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium at the Rockefeller Institute of Government. She is also the author of books like the upcoming Lockdown Drills: Connecting Research and Best Practices for School Administrators, Teachers, and Parents and Mass Shootings: Media, Myths, and Realities.

Have you ever wondered why every election feels like a massive existential crisis ? Or why it feels so difficult to pass laws that would seemingly satisfy the needs of most Americans (e.g. basic laws to make gun ownership more safe, restrict gun access to unstable people, etc) In Episode 22, Julie speaks with guest Shawn Thomas. Amongst the many hats that Shawn wears, he also runs @rankthevoteil in his spare time to raise awareness on the need for voting reform in the U.S Julie and Shawn first discuss the prevalence of gun violence in America, and how existing political systems are not set up to incentivize lawmakers to promote policies that majority of Americans want. They also discuss how this can be addressed through changes in the way we vote, such as through Rank Choice Voting (RCV) and Open Primaries. Listen to hear us talk about: Why the U.S. has the highest levels of gun violence compared to other rich nations How other countries solved their mass shooting problems Why can't the U.S follow suit? The problems with our current two party system and the way we vote How the existing voting structures create polarization and does not properly incentivize law makers to push for what majority people want. How we can fix these issues through Rank Choice Voting and Open Primaries. We end the episode on a lighter note with a lightening round of questions to get to know Shawn more personally!

What is at the root of violence in the United States? In this episode, we speak to people with close connections to gun violence about what they think causes it and talk about the impact of seeing great wealth while living in poverty. The richest 1% in the US controls about 40% of the nation's wealth. Could this be why the U.S. has more murders than other wealthy nations? We spoke to people from neighborhoods impacted by violence - some who have committed violent acts in the past - and people who are trying to disrupt the cycle about how we got here. Guests include Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, Kendra Van de Water and Yané of YEAH Philly, Kempis 'Ghani' Songster and William Bentley of Youth Art & Self-empowerment Project (YASP) and more!

A bipartisan bill in Congress is one step forward for gun safety, but the Supreme Court just pushed us two steps back. As the legislative path to reducing gun violence has closed, we might have more success if we can influence the way people think about guns in America. How can we change hearts and minds rather than laws, and, in doing so, make gun culture anathema instead of something we celebrate or just roll our eyes at?

Tops Friendly Market has now re-opened in East Buffalo, two months after a white supremacist walked into a the supermarket with guns blazing. Motivated by previous racist attacks and the false and insidious“great replacement theory,” the shooter live-streamed his killing spree, during which he took the lives of ten members of Buffalo's Black community. The victims included parents, the elderly, a beloved community activist and the security guard who died shooting back.Tops closed down for months, dealing another blow to the hard-hit community. For years, Tops was the only supermarket in an area that's otherwise a food desert. Its opening in 2003 marked the culmination of a years-long push from community members, after decades of disinvestment.As the community continues to heal and forge a path forward, Into America travels to Buffalo to speak with Buffalo natives Fragrance Harris Stanfield, who was working at Tops the day of the shooting, and Pastor Tim Newkirk, a community activist who was involved in the original push to bring a full-service grocery store to his community. For a transcript, please visit msnbc.com/intoamerica. Follow and share the show on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, using the handle @intoamericapod.Thoughts?

Lance Stevens was standing outside his home in his calm Indianapolis neighborhood with his mother, Kim Tillman, as she dropped off the two young grandkids from a weekend at her house, when a stranger with a gun changed their lives in an instant.  Lance was shot in the leg and another bullet grazed the side of his head, while his mother received the brunt of the gunfire: she was shot in the chest and armpit, and her arm and cheekbone were shattered. After decades of decline, gun violence has spiked since the pandemic. Experts told Into America that in Indianapolis, the demographics of victims are shifting, and survivors are becoming more likely to be older people and women, like Kim Tillman. It's also creeping into neighborhoods like Northwest Indianapolis that are usually untouched. Most of the nation's attention on gun violence is focused on mass shootings and homicides, but the vast majority of people who are shot survive. And like Kim and Lance, who were among the nearly 750 Indianapolis residents who were wounded by gun violence in 2021, these survivors not only must heal their physical wounds, but face a number of challenges and unexpected hurdles – from healthcare costs, damage to property, and navigating victim compensation funds – as the family tries to heal.A little over a year later after the shooting, host Trymaine Lee visited Lance and his wife Sophia Stevens, and grandma Kim Tillman at the Stevens' home in Indianapolis, to talk about recovery, acceptance, and moving forward after tragedy.For a transcript, please visit msnbc.com/intoamerica. Follow and share the show on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, using the handle @intoamericapod.Thoughts?
