Civil Politics (2/23/18): The Logic of Arming Educators

After the recent town hall, the Florida mass shooting is still fresh in our minds, and our show is dominated on a discussion about firearms. During this we go into a frank discussion about the specific weapon used and its effects on the human body.

Start: 28:21
End: 42:18
