Senator Wants Hearings On Reasons For Gun Violence

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren  is calling for hearings on the causes of and solutions to school and  other mass shootings.  

Warren, who is a member of the Senate Health,  Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, says Congress has a  responsibility to address gun violence as a public health crisis.   

There are several pieces of gun legislation going around the Senate.  It is unclear whether any of them will see the light of day.

According to the "New York Times," since 20 students and six adults were  killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in December of  2012, there have been at least 239 school shootings resulting in 138  deaths.
