Join the conversation. WXYZ hosts an honest conversation about mental illness and gun safety.

Co-Chair of the Michigan Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence Scott Nicols and Dr. Carol Van Dyke join Jennifer Wilson on Facebook live to discuss the possible link and what more can be done.

"When you say mental illness, that would alleviate culpability," says Van Dyke, who argues that mental illness is a factor, but not the whole problem when it comes to mass shootings. 

Listen to their discussion.
