Photojournalists Share Ideas To Help Fight Gun Violence

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Some Philadelphia photojournalists briefed City Council members Tuesday about a website they founded with the goal of stemming the tide of gun violence in the city.
The site is www.guncrisis.org and one of the founders briefing City Council was former Daily News photographer Jim MacMillan:
“It’s a combination of reporting on the problem — we’ve got a couple of people who spent a lot of time on the street, and who illuminate the problem, every day and every night — and at the same time we try to present a balance of solutions,” he said. “We’ve just recently launched a ‘solution of the day’ post, just to say ‘here’s what the problem is, here’s what you can do.'”
Councilman Curtis Jones said the site becomes a clearinghouse of ideas:
“So peanut butter realizes that there’s jelly out there and they come together and make something happen together.”
