Produced and co-hosted by Maria Luisa Tucker and Virginia Vitzthum
What should we do about people who broadcast their hate online? Should they be allowed to own guns? We interview Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams about his controversial proposal for law enforcement to review social media accounts of prospective gun owners. Plus: A lawsuit from Sandy Hook families moves forward; New Zealand bans assault rifles; and the U.S. Senate holds a hearing on red flag laws. We remember Joyce Fienberg, who was killed at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
