Gun Sales and Gun Deaths: The American Contradiction

Michael Shank, Ph.D., Director of Foreign Policy at the Friends Committee on National Legislation and Adjunct Professor at George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, discusses gun sales, gun safety, and gun control legislation in America, as part of a special CCTV News series on US guns in America.  Shank highlights the lack of concern regarding 30,000 annual American deaths related to gun violence and how, in any other context, like a war zone, 30,000 US deaths would spark a level of concern not seen in the gun debate.
