Dashboards make it simple

Dashboards organize information so that you can make sense of a lot of data. It's like when you're driving and you can see your speed, gas level and other details about your car at a glance. The dashboard changes automatically by the second. This School Shooting Dashboard similarly presents the facts about school shootings as they happen. David refreshes the database that powers this map regularly with every new shooting incident.

This dashboard provides totals of the number of school shooting incidents, deaths and injuries. This helps provide a better sense of the scope of this tragedy and where the shootings took place. Where in the school and when did the shooting occur? How many bullets were fired?

Podcasts with people touched by gun violence and advocating for gun safety

Sandy and Lonnie Phillips, Founders of Survivors Empowered discuss their reaction and activism as a result of the murder of their daughter Jessi, killed in the Aurora Colorado theatre 2012 mass shooting.  Their organization is focused on regulating companies that sell ammunition and repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

David Riedman, Founder and Independent Researcher of the K-12 School Shooting Database peels back the layers of the challenges of predicting and preventing school shootings. One significant step is to collect data and fill in the missing pieces to get a better sense of who is most at risk of being involved in a school shooting and actions that can be taken to protect students and staff.

Po Murray, Co-Founder and Chairwoman of the Newtown Action Alliance discusses the variations in state and federal laws protecting residents from gun violence. Since Uvalde, there have been changes in the awareness of the need for background checks and holding stakeholders responsible for public safety. Citizen activists are pushing for state and federal legislation to pierce the shield that protects weapon sales. 

TakeAway: Stop the gun lobby using blood money political donations to boost their profits. Vote for President Biden and Democrats to curb the carnage from senseless gun violence.
