Link between gun violence and ACEs

This article is an opinion piece in the Detroit News that discusses a link between mass shootings and ACEs. This article relates to what we talked about in class about ACEs and their negative effect on physical and mental health, but it makes a connection with mass shootings as well. The research so far is only correlational, but ACEs are one of four commonalities found in every mass shooter since 1966. This article is important because mass shootings are a crisis that the country is facing, and knowing a possible cause for them can help with the prevention of future shootings and reaching a solution.
