Facing South Florida: Cracking Down On Gun Violence

Jim DeFede says in the days before the Cuba crisis and the Surfside building collapse, a big story making headlines in South Florida was the wave of mass shootings and deadly gun violence.

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava had just returned from her meeting on that subject at the White House when the Surfside tragedy struck.

DeFede takes a closer look at the plan to crack down on gun violence with Operation Summer Heat, as well as the program to give summer jobs to hundreds of at-risk young people, to see if they are moving forward.
