After a three week hiatus, I’m back with the 20th episode of the Left of Lansing Podcast!
This week, we talk gun violence after the horrific mass shooting events last weekend in El Paso and Dayton.
Pat begins by explaining why the right wing always wants to blame “mental illness” whenever a white male–or, more importantly, a right wing extremist white male–commits an act of terror and violence.
Then, Emily Durbin from the Michigan chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense America joins the podcast. Emily offers her expertise on gun violence, and how Moms Demand Action are fighting to change the debate by putting candidates in office who’ll listen to our voices.
Finally, Pat shares a clarion call by friend of the podcast, Michigan Democratic state Senator Mallory McMorrow from Royal Oak. Senator McMorrow tweeted an inspirational message after last week’s horrific events.
