With a culture of violence degrading our nation, gun safety advocates mourn the victims and feel frustration at the stranglehold the gun lobby has on our body politic. But what can be done?
Join Matthew Bennett of Third Way, Jonathan Lowy of The Brady Campaign, and Robyn Thomas of the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence as they delve beyond the high-pitched rhetoric and shocking headlines to explore the historical and political context of gun policy, the roles that state and local governments can play in the face of federal inaction, and innovative litigation approaches to hold institutions and manufacturers accountable.
