Flashpoint 8/11/19: Stopping mass shootings; Michigan's high water levels

Watch Flashpoint every Sunday at 10 a.m. on Local 4

DETROITHere is what you missed on Sunday's episode of Flashpoint: 

The nation's searing wound is ripped open again – and again. Is there a way to stop mass violence before it happens? 

The discussion comes after dozens of people were killed during two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, last weekend. 

Then water levels have been on the rise to a dangerous degree in Michigan. Multiple communities are experiencing flooding problems. Docks and piers have been swallowed up, causing problems along the shoreline. There was also a discussion about swells and currents that have taken almost three dozen lives in Michigan this summer. 

If it is the new normal, what does the Great Lakes State need to do to manage our greatest natural resource?
