    3 Gun Violence: Not One More

    3 Gun Violence: Not One More

    Colorado Springs needs to have some conversations, changes, and healing in the aftermath of the death of De’Von Bailey – shot in the back on August 3 as he ran from two police officers. Community members gathered for dialogue in this “listening session” at the Sand Creek Library on August 19, 2019.
    The session was guided by Stephany Rose Spaulding, director and associate professor of Women’s and Ethnic Studies at UCCS, senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, and candidate for U.S. Senate. Stephany is also the author of Recovering From Racism: A Guidebook to Beginning Conversations (2015) and Abolishing White Masculinity from Mark Twain to Hiphop: Crisis in Whiteness.

    1 Let's Buy a Gun or Two Before Dinner

    Soup and salad, burger and fries, being an American and owning a gun? Justice activist Josh Rumple joins host Victoria Stone to discuss gun violence. On the table: the challenge of having a dialogue about making people safer when one side is just sure you want to take away their guns. What are the indicators that a person has a propensity toward future gun violence? How easy is it to buy not just one gun, but lots of guns, in Colorado? What do we do in the time we have before the next mass shooting?
