In the aftermath of the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida the national discourse has once again turned to the debate over whether stricter gun laws should be passed. Being that this can be an incredibly complex topic to unravel, especially given the current gridlock in Congress, Alicia and I invited John Zipperer, the host of the political roundtable program Week to Week at the Commonwealth Club in for our ELI5 segment to answer the question: Will Congress pass new gun control regulations?
John does an incredible job breaking down the multi-faceted issue. This is a must listen for anyone looking to glean insight on the issue beyond the repetitive talking points.
Explain Like I’m Five is presented by the Commonwealth Club, the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum, intent on finding truth and turning it loose in the world.
