PBS NewsHour presents “Ricochet: An American Trauma”

America’s decades-long epidemic of gun violence has led to a unique form of collective trauma. It is felt by shooting survivors, the families and friends of victims, first responders, community members – and those throughout the country who watch events unfold on television and social media.

Meanwhile, suicide accounts for more than half of all gun-related deaths in the U.S. And the daily impact of community gun violence continues to grip American cities, leading to widespread mental health impacts.

PBS NewsHour presents “Ricochet: An American Trauma,” an hour-long documentary examining the US gun violence crisis and the people it impacts most.

“Ricochet: An American Trauma” will air on PBS on Wednesday, October 5th at 10:00 p.m. ET (check local listings) and on NewsHour’s social platforms, including YouTube.
