Politics Day: Mixed Reactions to the Orlando Massacre

Jun 16, 2016

The U.S. House of Representatives erupted in shouting this week, after lawmakers held a moment of silence for the victims of the Orlando mass shooting, and Democrats protested the Republican-led chamber’s refusal to consider tighter gun regulations.

On this politics day edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer is joined by political analysts Rachel Caufield of Drake University and Jim McCormick of Iowa State University, to discuss the political discussions happening in the wake of the Orlando shooting, as well as what, if any, action may be taken on the regulation of assault rifle purchases.
