Roughly Speaking podcast: Will the Orlando massacre change anything? (episode 108)

In this podcast:

Dan speaks with Firmin DeBrabander, professor of philosophy at the Maryland Institute College of Art and author of "Do Guns Make us Free? Democracy and the Armed Society," his reporting and reflections on the country’s gun culture, published a year ago by Yale University Press. Is the scale of the massacre in Orlando going to change anything when it comes to the amount and type of guns available to American citizens? Will Congress and the states raise the bar on who is allowed to legally purchase and own a certain firearm? Or are we to accept — and expect — such nightmares as the price of freedom in a democracy?
