How does gun violence in LA compare to the rest of the US?

We just had a weekend of emotional calls from teenagers for stricter gun control and a commitment to fight violence. We talk to a young LA student activist about his experience growing up dodging bullets, and get perspective on violence nationwide from Jill Leovy, who’s spent 10 years reporting on gun violence in LA County.
