The Intersection of Domestic Violence and Mass Shootings
Show Notes

Two-thirds of mass shootings in the U.S. are committed by perpetrators with a history of domestic violence.  A recent report from the Office of Justice Programs’ National Criminal Justice Reference Service explores the connection between domestic violence and mass shootings offering both findings as well as opportunities for improving prevention and response. Jan Langbein and Jordyn Lawson of Genesis explore the highlights of the report, characteristics of these offenders, issues of entitlement and male privilege, and how Genesis responds to survivors of these experiences. This episode discusses mass shootings, gun violence, domestic violence, narcissism and suicide.
