CoJMC broadcasting students have been working on the 35-minute special for the past three weeks. It followed the Parkland, Florida school shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 students and teachers dead and 17 others wounded. It was one of America’s deadliest school massacres. In the aftermath of the Florida shootings, students wanted to know what conversations about guns and reducing gun violence were surfacing in Lincoln, Nebraska.
