Discussion: Orlando nightclub shooting

A gunman opened fire inside a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 people and wounding another 53. It’s being called the worst mass shooting in recent US history. What drove the killer to commit this horrific crime? And how should we view the immediate politicization of this tragedy? Donald Trump blamed the incident on Muslims being allowed into the US, and Hillary Clinton called for stricter gun control laws. Why have mass killings increased in recent years, and can further massacres be prevented? Join us for a discussion with Mr. Teng Jianqun, Director of the Department of American Studies at China Institute of International Studies; in Washington D.C., Mr. Thomas Sanderson, Senior Fellow and Director of Transnational Threats Project at Center for Strategic and International Studies; and also in Washington D.C., Mr. Raymond Tanter, former senior staff member of the National Security Council in the Reagan-Bush Administration and professor emeritus of the University of Michigan.
