Federal Gun Control and Gun Violence Here in LA…

Hosted by

Gun violence is down in Los Angeles—but it still takes a heavy toll. Would today’s proposals by President Obama help to reduce it more? At Scripps College in Claremont today, sheriff’s deputies, local police and other first responders conducted drills on how to cope with a potential mass shooting.  KCRW’s Saul Gonzalez was there.
