The New Normal: How to prevent gun violence
The Gun Violence Archive says there have been 479 mass shootings this year.
The "ISO," which sets standards for payment transactions, on Friday approved the creation of a special code for gun stores to use when processing credit or debit cards.

To talk about preventing gun violence, News 12's Elizabeth Hashagen was joined by Matt Seifer, a certified New York state firearms instructor and owner of Guardian Security Training, and Dr. Jose Prince, surgeon in chief at Cohen Children's Medical Center and executive for Northwell Health's Center for Gun Violence Prevention.
