How Cops, Shrinks, and FBI Agents Are Scrambling To Stop the Next Gun Rampage

Watch MoJo reporter Mark Follman discuss how “threat assessment” is helping identify potential mass shooters.

Mother Jones national affairs editor Mark Follman spoke with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Monday night about our cover story, “Inside the Race to Stop the Next Mass Shooter.” The MoJo investigation comes just days after a 26-year-old opened fire at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, killing nine and wounding nine others.
