A national group of scholars is calling for 'prevention' over 'reaction' in wake of the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida last month. WBFO's senior reporter Eileen Buckley talked with a University at Buffalo expert who has joined the national 'call for action' to prevent gun violence.

Steve Inskeep talks to Dr. William Reid, who's spent time with the man who killed 12 people at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. He explains the extent to which mass shooters share personality traits.
