In the first half of today's episode, we discussed the several mass shooting incidents that took place over the past week and weekend. We use the time to establish the extent of gun violence in this country and to breathe life into some stories that didn't reach the same extent as the Uvalde and Buffalo shootings.
In the second half of today's show, we begin to address the real issue of the day which is guns. We talk about how the narrative is constantly being shifted away from the real solutions and that there are many distractions that pull folks away from key focal points of the topic of gun control.
