What Should Be Done About Guns in the U.S., And How to Do It

Michael Saechang

Two more high-profile mass shootings this past month have rekindled the national debate over guns, gun rights, and gun regulation.

  • David Pierce - Democratic state senator from Etna. He has co-sponsored a bill that would establish a criminal penalty for providing a firearm to a person prohibited from possessing a firearm.
