Mass Shootings Can Be Prevented, This Anti-Gun-Violence Group Says: Here's A PSA To Show You How
Mass shootings are preventable, an anti-gun violence group says in a video PSA — and it has released a guide on how to spot the warning signs. The video, produced by a nonprofit formed by families of victims of the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, starts out by focusing on a red-haired teenager who is bored at school. It follows the teen, Evan, as he exchanges messages engraved on a library desk with a mystery girl. Just as the two finally meet at the school gymnasium, another teen armed with a rifle appears in the doorway, sending students fleeing. (Agrawal, 12/6)
