As the U.S. reels from two mass shootings in Atlanta and Boulder, Colorado, legislators are grappling with what meaningful gun control reform looks like.

Researcher Jennifer Carlson co-wrote in a New York Times op-ed that Americans need to understand gun trauma and its ripple effects in order to treat the public health crisis of gun violence.

Host Peter O'Dowd speaks with Carlson, a sociologist at the University of Arizona, about her research and its impact on policymaking.

This segment aired on March 29, 2021.
