CNN announced it has scheduled a town hall on guns for Wednesday night, hosted by anchor Chris Cuomo, after two more mass shootings occurred, in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
The town hall, America Under Assault: The Gun Crisis will air on Wednesday, August 7 at 9pm ET. Among the topics to be discussed in the wake of the shootings will be: gun violence in America; white nationalism and the rise in hate crimes; and whether or not the President and Congress will take any action to make America safer. The audience will include survivors of gun violence from across the country coming together for this important event.
CNN’s last town hall on guns in Parkland, moderated by Jake Tapper, won a Walter Cronkite award for best “National Network News Program” for helping to “advance the national conversation on gun control and violence.”
