Yesterday, an estimated 20,000 people including students, families and community members at the University of California, Santa Barbara held a vigil mourning six of their fellow students who were killed last week in a deadly rampage.

The killer, Elliot Rodger, fatally stabbed his roommates and then went on a shooting rampage in the Isla Vista community near the campus, before apparently fatally shooting himself. Another 13 people were injured in the attack.

In recent years we’ve been through many similar tragedies - Virginia Tech. Tucson. Aurora. Newtown. Fort Hood.

Today on Radioactivity, Rob Lorei speaks with Ladd Everitt, Director of Communications of Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, a non-profit based in Washington DC. CSGV is comprised of 47 national organizations working to reduce gun violence. Coalition members include religious organizations, child welfare advocates, public health professionals, and social justice organizations.
