DemocracyNow.org - After losing both her father and her brother to gun violence in St. Louis, and later being victimized by domestic violence, Goldie Taylor purchased a gun for her own protection. On Monday, three days after the Newtown massacre, Taylor wrote: "After my father and brother were murdered, owning a gun made me feel secure. Now it's time to give it up."
As President Obama vows new action on gun control, Taylor joins Democracy Now! to discuss her own case and the gun violence from Newtown, Connecticut, to the streets of Chicago, where nearly 500 people have been murdered this year mostly by guns. Taylor, an MSNBC contributor and managing editor of The Goldie Taylor Project, calls on the corporate media to do a better job reporting all gun-related killings, regardless of race, economic class and gender.
