In this podcast, stunning research shows that nearly two-thirds of mass shootings in the U.S. are committed by those with a history of domestic violence. A recent report from the Office of Justice Programs’ National Criminal Justice Reference Service exposes a link between domestic violence and mass shootings offering findings as well as opportunities for enhancing prevention and response. Jan Langbein and Jordyn Lawson explore the high points of the report, characteristics of these offenders, and issues of entitlement and male privilege.
