CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin took thirty seconds on air Monday afternoon to count, showing just how long it took in Dayton, Ohio, for a shooter to kill nine and injure thirty-seven. In thirty seconds, the police took down the gunman.
In thirty seconds, Baldwin reasons, you can reach out to your elected officials.
“In just 30 seconds, a gunman murdered nine people and left 37 injured right here in Dayton, Ohio. In just 30 seconds, police took down that gunman, saving hundreds of lives. And in just 30 seconds, you can call your elected representative and demand they do something about this,” Baldwin said Monday on CNN Right Now.
CNN did not return a request for comment from TheWrap.
On Wednesday, the network will hold a town hall event moderated by Chris Cuomo on guns.
