Phil Andrew, principal of the Pax Group, LLC spoke to us about the prevalence of gun violence in the US compared to the rest of the world.  His interesting and often shocking information was well-received by our group.  Phil explianed how even though mass shootings (4 or more killed) are increasing, most gun deaths occur with one or two people killed.  He also said that the most popular rifle, based on sales in the US, is the semi-automatic AR-15. The US far exceeds the number of gun deaths of any nation in the world.
