    In the midst of all these school shootings in the United States, probably very few people heard about this shooting that happened at a Church in California, where a person was killed and five were injured when a subject came in and shot them and tried to actually fire bomb the Church.
    What is the impact of these increasingly common faith based attacks on communities?
    Should you ‘pray it away’ or arm your Altar Boys and Girls?

    PORT ARTHUR MASSACRE AUSTRALIA

    What would happen if we got rid of the guns?


    The million dollar question and to answer it this episode we are firing up the time machine and heading back to 1996 in Port Arthur on the Australian Island of Tasmania. After this shooting, the country's whole governing authorities pass the toughest gun laws in the world. 
    It's really interesting to think in every country, we have this question about how guns play into it and what would happen if we got rid of the guns.
    And yet, in fact, we have an experiment going on right now of a country that essentially did get rid of all their guns.
    Katherine and Sarah are joined by Dr Adam Lankford - Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Alabama. We tap into the results of his global study to see what the stats say. 
    Tune in and find out the results….. Did the country descend into anarchy or was it an end to mass shootings?

    SAVING SYCAMORE Part 2
    The School Shooting that never was….

    In part one of our interview with the Medal of Honour recipient, Molly Hudgens, she had us hanging on every word as she recounted the day a child walked into her office with a loaded gun. She was the only thing that stood between a gunman and another school shooting statistic. 

    In part two, we pick our jaws up off the floor and ask the questions that I am sure many of you listening also have.

Great information for everyone

About a year ago, I read the “Stop The Killing” book by Katherine Schweit and I found it fascinating. With her background as a journalist, attorney and FBI agent, Katherine brings a skill set to the subject that would be hard to match. Now, as a podcaster, she brings these stories to her audience with plenty of details and thoughtful analysis. She answers the questions that I would ask if given the chance. I would recommend this podcast to everyone who has an interest in the subject of gun violence. The first season concentrated on the big active shooter events that we are all familiar with. Now, the second season continues this but with several bonus episodes and some excellent “guests” that add even more expertise and perspective to the subject. If you want fact based discussion with real suggestions for what to do in these dangerous situations, “Stop The Killing” is the podcast for you.

So Informative

As someone living in the United States I am so thankful this podcast exists. It is the unfortunate reality that the actionable steps provided in this podcast are things all US citizens should be aware of and I am grateful for the information being out there. I recommend this podcast to anyone that not only wants to be more informed about gun violence, active shooters, and mass shootings, but also those who want to gain knowledge on what they can do if they are ever in such a situation.
