How We Balance Freedom and Safety in a Pro-Gun Society

Yet another mass killing last week has attention focused again on gun control. What’s reasonable? What’s doable? What will work? President Obama is calling for his own party to make modest proposals that won’t offend the Second Amendment or the lobbyist National Rifle Association. And even very conservative Republicans say some gun laws make sense. But will we get somewhere this time - or will efforts stall over the same tired arguments? And if you’re a gun owner - what do YOU think will help curb gun violence? Stephen Henderson speaks with Richard Broughton; Associate Professor of Law, University of Detroit-Mercy teaches Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Constitutional Law, and Federal Criminal Law and Ryan Carlson; Senior Systems Administrator for WDET — gun owner and advocate for concealed carry. Listeners weigh in on how to solve the controversy.
