Senator Chris Murphy on The Violence Inside Us: A Book Talk about Gun Violence

Please join the Solomon Center at Yale Law School in welcoming Senator Chris Murphy to discuss his book The Violence Inside Us: A Brief History of an Ongoing American Tragedy.

Is America destined to always be a violent nation? This sweeping history by U.S. Senator Chris Murphy explores the origins of our violent impulses, the roots of our obsession with firearms, and the mythologies that prevent us from confronting our national crisis. Murphy tells the story of his profound personal transformation in the wake of the mass murder at Newtown, and his subsequent immersion in the complicated web of influences that drive American violence.
