Honoring the 31 people killed in El Paso, Dayton massacres

Clip: 08/09/2019 | 5m 29s

American attention turned to gun violence this week after mass murders in El Paso and Dayton. But in the last 72 hours alone, at least 69 other people have been killed and 167 injured by gun violence in 32 states -- and that’s excluding suicide, which makes up the largest proportion of gun deaths. The NewsHour concludes by remembering each of the 31 people killed in last weekend’s mass shootings.
