Mandel’s Dan Flannery comments on recent surge of gun violence in Cleveland

One dead, three wounded in separate shootings in downtown Cleveland
WEWSDan Flannery, director of the Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education, discussed the recent surge of gun violence in the City of Cleveland, noting that it can all be traced to the amount of guns available. “If you get into a dispute and you think somebody else has a gun and you have a gun, you’re going to use yours before they use theirs,” he said. “Many people are carrying arms right now that are also more lethal with their ammunition and expanded capacity and the ability to convert handguns into rifle-type semi-automatic weapons.”
