Report: Philly youth have 'greater chance' of being shot than soldiers
In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, a fresh look is being given to gun laws and gun violence, especially in Philadelphia where the homicide rate among young men is among the highest in the nation. But why doesn't the degree of gun violence in urban areas capture more attention?
The "cradle to grave" program at Temple University aims to give a first-hand look at the problem in the hopes of making a difference. Young people visit an emergency room and "live out" the final moments of someone who has been shot to death.
In the meantime, legislators and expert struggle over what to do, according to a CNN report.
