Episode 18: Guns in America – How Did We Get Here?

EP18 The gun situation in America is a hot topic in the national dialogue and remains a emotional one for many. In this episode we take a step back from the emotion and look at the raw facts and numbers to look at how we got to this point, how other countries deal with guns and why American gun control is such a battle. Below are some of the charts that we used when referencing some of the statistics. You can also find some links to more information on guns in America below. Enjoy the show!
