Gun Violence and Domestic Abuse

Episode description

In this episode, Jessy and Rebekah weigh in on the national conversation about gun violence and wonder why domestic violence isn’t discussed as one of the contributing factors. Your favorite hosts also eat some chips and challenge each other’s knowledge of everything fun, and humorously tragic, with their very first “Did You Know?!?!” Lightening Round. Sit back and enjoy.

4:00: Rebekah said that the walk-out on April 20th is to mark the 10th anniversary of the massacre at Columbine High School. She misspoke. It will be the 20th anniversary. Columbine happened on April 20, 1998.

10:22: Jessy farted. Kidding, she didn’t It was the chair’s squeaky leather.

10:40: Experts who study domestic violence call it “intimate terrorism,” which is basically the most heartbreakingly accurate name for anything ever.

11:50: Janay Rice (nee Palmer) was knocked unconscious in an elevator by her husband, former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice, in Atlantic City in February, 2014. She immediately became, according to the New York Times, “the most famous bartered wife in the country.” The events ignited a nationwide conversation about domestic violence, what should be done and how a battered woman “should” behave or “should” proceed in the aftermath. You can read Janay Rice’s story as recounted to Jemele Hill here.

Mother Jones’ Guide to Mass Shootings

The Violence Policy Center puts out an annual piece called “When Men Murder Women” that analyzes homicide data. This annual study looks state by state and details all the circumstances of reported homicides of women by men in single-victim/single-offender incidents.

This article in the New York Times called “Control and Fear: What Mass Killings and Domestic Violence Have in Common” is an important read.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg started an organization called Everytown for Gun Safety. They are an incredibly active group working towards increased gun control measures. Visit https://everytown.org to learn more about what they do and to access all their studies.
