The Thursday mass shooting at Umpqua Community College is only the latest in what seems like a never-ending series of events involving guns and schools. 

Several guests join us in this hour to talk about this specific incident, but more broadly, what--if anything--we understand about the perpetrators and their motivations. 

Eugene's Joe Lieberman, who wrote two books on school shootings, joins us. 

We also gain the insight of public safety and counseling officials from Southern Oregon University.
