Bridge Michigan’s monthly Lunch Break series returned Friday with a discussion on gun violence in Michigan.

If you missed this live Zoom event, you can watch it on-demand below. The event also included a lively discussion and many resources shared via the Zoom chat feature. To read a transcript of the chat, click here.


Bridge Michigan reporters Isabel Lohman, Jonathan Oosting and Yue Stella Yu discussed the state of gun violence and legislation designed to stop mass shootings. Managing Editor Joel Kurth moderated the conversation.


Topics included security at colleges and universities in Michigan and in other states, breaking news related to the timeline of the shooting at Michigan State University, what we know about statistics related to gun violence in Michigan, proposed changes to gun policies, impact of mass shootings on student mental health and much more. Bridge’s coverage of gun violence is supported by the Joyce Foundation.

Bridge’s Lunch Break monthly series focuses on timely topics facing our state. Previous discussions have included examinations of Michigan’s November 2022 statewide election results, inflation’s impact in Michigan, teacher staffing challenges in K-12 schools, August’s primary election results, youth mental health in Michigan, Bridge’s 10th anniversary, Michigan’s elder caregiving crisis, and Michigan’s new redistricting maps.
