Summary Could training courses on how to escape being shot solve the problem of mass shootings in the US? Dateline looks at the latest move in the gun debate. Dateline reports on the mission to rescue Sumatra's orangutans and the battle to stop their native forests being destroyed, plus; hundreds are being trafficked from Nigeria to Italy into a life of prostitution and crime, igniting violence between rival mafia groups. DAMAGE CONTROLWhat would you do if you found yourself in the middle of a mass shooting? It's the question people in the United States are being urged to think about, after a run of killings in recent months. On Tuesday's Dateline, Aaron Thomas reports from Texas, where training courses on escaping the bullets are becoming increasingly popular and are seen by some as the solution to the problem. But with gun sales up 20 per cent on last year and less support than ever before for stricter gun laws, the debate over the right to bear arms still divides the nation. Aaron gets an insight into the reality of life in a country where everyone around you could be armed.APE RESCUEVast swathes of land on the Indonesian island of Sumatra have been cleared for palm oil plantations and the native wildlife has been left with nowhere to go. On Dateline this Tuesday, David Brill reports on the mission to rescue the orangutans and return them to the wild elsewhere. Hundreds are being looked after by the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Program, which also rescues those kept as pets in appalling conditions. But on a visit to a decimated forest, it's clear the conservation team still has a battle on its hands to save these human-like creatures.MAFIA WARSEach year tens of thousands of people from west Africa move to Europe in search of a better life, but the reality for many is far different. They're trafficked by gangs promising good jobs, but end up forced into prostitution and caught up in crimes such as drug trafficking. On Tuesday's Dateline, Juliana Ruhfus reports from Castel Volturno in southern Italy... a town that looks far different to the Italy we're used to seeing. Clashes between the local mafia and the newer Nigerian mafia have led to violent confrontations and murders. And areas of once picturesque holiday homes are now impoverished dangerous neighbourhoods, inhabited by people who can't get any official papers or work. There now seems virtually no way out for those who came to Italy with such high hopes
