On this episode of Civil Politics, the panel welcomes George Claxton back from his hiatus, and we come to terms with a year of unprecedented gun violence in the United States. Also, in the aftermath of the latest GOP debate in Nevada, we once again discuss the presidential primary races and try to guess where they might be headed.
Gun control, Islam, immigration, and what would happen at the GOP convention if Donald Trump accrues enough votes. The second half is dominated by a conversation about gun control and different definitions of conservatism.
We open with speaking shootings. California, Colorado, and others – and the fact that we need to say “and others” to clarify the topic is a particular point of frustration.
We then pivot to celebrating women being allowed to serve in any and all aspects of our military, and the 2016 Presidential Race.
