Join authors/experts Tom Diaz (The Last Gun: How Changes in the Gun Industry Are Killing Americans and What It Will Take to Stop It) and Josh Horwitz (Executive Director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and author of Guns, Democracy and the Insurrectionist Idea) for a revealing and pragmatic conversation about gun violence in the United States. We know that we have a problem, but what can we do about it? What does effective policy and legislation look like? And how did we end up here in the first place? Join us for this important and timely discussion.
