The CT Presents: Beyond the Politics

Earlier today, The Commonwealth Times hosted a discussion panel focusing on the conversation about guns in America on both sides of the argument. Here's the video of the full event, audio courtesy of WVCW Radio and video courtesy of Mercury Video.

We collaborated with The Commonwealth Times, the independent student-run newspaper at VCU, to capture a panel discussion they held about gun violence and potential solutions from all sides of the argument. WVCW, the independent student-run radio station at VCU, broadcasted and recorded the audio used in the video.
