Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today- in the wake of the tragic killings in Wisconsin of people in a Sikh temple by a white supremacist we'll talk with Ladd Everitt who is communications director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.
In the wake of Sunday's shootings the CSGV issued a statement saying: "The gunman in Oak Creek, 40 year-old neo-Nazi Wade Michael Page, had much in common with other recent mass shooters. He used a semiautomatic firearm with high-capacity ammunition magazines. And he was able to purchase his guns and ammo legally despite a personal history replete with red flags. Page was an Army veteran who had been discharged under less than honorable conditions. He had a criminal history. Most importantly, Page had been publicly involved in the White Power movement since 2000. He was known to both federal law enforcement authorities and also anti-hate watch groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center. And this is just what we know after a few hours.".
Leveritt joins us now.
