Our Town Meetings are always active affairs. Join us for our session on "Gun Violence in America: What Can or Should Be Done in Media, Politics and Mental Health" on Tuesday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m. In the aftermath of Sandy Hook there has been a great deal of speculation as to what is contributing to the upswing in mass shootings and violence in the public arena. Three areas have been targeted specifically: the lack of affordable mental health care, violence in the media, and gun legislation. Our panel includes: WRAL anchor and reporter David Crabtree, psychiatrist, humanist and philanthropist Dr. Assad Meymandi, Congressman David Price, representing North Carolina's 4th District. As always, we thank our co-moderators, Clay Stalnaker and Mamie Potter.
