Deadliest mass-shooting in US underscores need for stronger, saner gun policies (full video)

As we learn more about the tragic events unfolding in Orlando, we are posting the full video of this week’s Crucial Conversation on lessons learned one year after the mass shooting at Mother Emanuel church in Charleston, South Carolina.

NC Policy Watch would like to thank State Senator Floyd McKissick, Rev. Kylon Middleton, and Rev. Jennifer Copeland of the North Carolina Council of Churches for being a part of this important conversation.

Here in North Carolina, we see newfound energy and activism in the work of groups like North Carolinians Against Gun Violence and the North Carolina Council of Churches, which will be sponsoring a “Stand Up Sabbath” in congregations throughout our state the weekend of June 18-19.
