RALEIGH — There have been 52 mass shootings in the United States since October 13 when a 15-year-old boy shot seven, killing five, in his northeastern Raleigh neighborhood. Less than one month’s mass shootings have claimed 66 lives.

In response, The News & Observer and NCInsider want to hear from you.

On Tuesday, November 15, at the NC Museum of History, there is a free, interactive program to promote meaningful conversation.  The goal is to connect local leaders and experts with the public.  Four guests will help with the discussion.

Panelists are Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin, Jeffrey Swanson, a professor in psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University School of Medicine who also works with the Center for Firearms Law at Duke Law School; Karen Fairley, executive director of the N.C. Department of Public Instruction’s Center for Safer Schools; and Dr. Elizabeth Cuervo Tilson, North Carolina’s state health director and chief medical officer for the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.
