School Shootings

Colleges and universities across Georgia have wrapped up the semester, but one Morehouse College student has more work to do. Last year, Julien Turner took an extra credit biology assignment and turned it into a viral music video about the differences between mitosis and meiosis. The rising junior's video made it all the way to the people who work on "Sesame Street." Now, Julien and his brother are creating an educational music video for the show. Julien spoke with GPB's Leah Fleming about the project.

In the United States, school shootings have been one of the most hotly debated topics in 2018.

 

The issue was re-ignited in February, when 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida

 

 

In some cases, the people behind these crimes are dealing with a form of mental illness, including one man who attempted a school shooting in Atlanta in 2013.

On this edition of Political Rewind, we are live from the Georgia State Capitol for Crossover Day.  Which crucial bills will die and which will live to see another day?  Among the measures hanging in the balance: a bill to keep guns out of the hands of Georgians with mental illness and a tax break for Delta Airlines that’s now caught up in the highly charged gun control debate.
