FROM THIS EPISODE

A federal appellate court says California's law against openly carrying guns in public is having an unintended consequence. Since the state also bans concealed carry, it's denying the 2nd Amendment right to "bear" arms. We unravel a complex case that could be on its way to the US Supreme Court. Also, the United Nations accuses North Korea of "crimes against humanity," including the starvation, torture and execution. Will the call for "accountability" at the International Criminal Court make a difference inside the country?

What's at stake for the Taliban and Afghan women? Will there still be support in this country for continued involvement?

Has a California Gun Control Law Backfired? 18 MIN, 29 SEC

In 2010, California gun rights advocates created a spectacle by prominently carrying handguns at Starbucks. Under state law, their action was legal as long as the guns were unloaded. Gun control groups demanded a change, and the state legislature then banned what's called "open carry." Now a federal appellate court has ruled that there was an unintended consequence: the ban on "open carry" means there cannot also be a limit on "concealed carry."
