On Thursday, the Pennsylvania Capital-Star hosted its first ever #PennForward forum.
The first forum, which discussed the issue of gun violence in Pennsylvania, was joined by a 5-member panel of experts that weighed in on the issue.
The panelists included Dr. Eileen Ahlin, associate professor of criminal justice at Penn State Harrisburg; Joshua Vaughn, crime reporter for The Appeal; Erin Buchner, volunteer state legislative lead at Moms Demand and Brent Miller, a Pennsylvania state trooper.
Among other topics, the panelists discussed gun violence prevention measures, suicide, and the portrayal of gun violence in the media.

It will also be rebroadcast by Pennsylvania Cable Network TV later in the week.
