How do we talk about gun violence when it's not in the form of a mass shooting? We held a student town hall to discuss how local kids deal with the threat of violence locally, and how adults can respond.

Masked gunmen attacked the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo today, killing 12 people. Four of the publication’s best-known editorial cartoonists, including the magazine’s editor, are reportedly among the dead. In recent years Charlie Hebdo has published stories and cartoons — ncluding depictions of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad — that offended various religious groups. We talk with cartoonist Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher about ongoing controversies involving religion, satire and politics around the world.
