0000017a-15d9-d736-a57f-17ff8c300000Over the week, the newsroom will examine issues and topics surrounding guns in New Hampshire for our special series, A Loaded Issue. Stories include a look at our state’s gun laws, the big business of manufacturing guns, how parents are prosecuted in accidental shootings, the culture around open carry and the efforts to repeal the state’s Stand Your Ground law. Each day, we’ll also ask a new online discussion question.

Dean Spiliotes is civic scholar at Southern New Hampshire University. He joins All Things Considered host Brady Carlson to look back at where New Hampshire's members of congress and congressional candidates have stood on gun issues.
