More than 1 million Floridians hold concealed weapons permits. Our panelists discuss Florida's efforts to curb gun violence, from mass killings that grab national headlines, to the much more common violence that happens every day. We'll also meet shooting enthusiasts at the Manatee Gun and Archery Club.
