[Voice of American Intl. Edition] October 3rd: Jack Talks the Gun Control Debate.

I appear on Voice of America International Edition on October 3rd. Okay, this promises to be a hot topic. With 59 dead and more than 500 injured in Law Vegas, this is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. And without question, one of the reasons there are as many dead as there are is because of the kinds of weapons used and technology legally available that made the shooter capable of pumping large number of rounds into a massive group of people.

As I look at this issue, one conlcusion is clear.  Little to nothing will change. After the shooting, gun sales increased, again. After every mass shooting, gun sales increase and nothing is done. One side loses it while the other sides acts like its not as problem.  Is there an answer?

This is going to be interesting.


[Kare 11 Minneapolis] October 3rd: Jack Talks Mass Shooting in Law Vegas

I appear on Kare 11 Minneapolis on the Morning Show.  The numbers are still coming in and they are staggering. More than 50 dead and more than 500 injured. This is the worst mass shooting in American history. I will talk about the history of these kinds of shootings, what this means and will then focus in on the Twin Cities.

Minneapolis will host the Super Bowl next year.  How does one handle security with such a high profile event. The whole world will be watching which is exactly the reasons that it will be such an enticing target. A lot to talk about.

Hope uyou can catch it.


[WVLY West Virginia] October 2nd: Jack Talks Law Vegas Mass Shooting

I appear on WVLY West Virginia with my buddy Howard Monroe on October 2nd.  Information continues to come in about this mass shooting. The dead pile up and the injured are certainly in the hundreds.  The informartion on the shooter strikes me as atypical for what one should expect in this kind of an incident. He is older with no contact with the police, no history of anti social behavior.  More will undoubtedly come out but at this point, there is a lot to talk about.

Hope you can listen.
