About this Episode

National Review senior writer and author David Harsanyi joins the show to discuss the heart-breaking mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado, where a deranged gunman killed 10 at a grocery store using an AR-15-style rifle.

Does this vindicate Democratic calls for gun control? Would "universal background checks" or a ban on "assault weapons" have made a difference? What do people misunderstand about gun violence and the Second Amendment in America?

We break this all down and more.
