Description

Lawmakers suggest teachers arm themselves. People can download 3D plans to make their own guns. High school students across the country demand a solution to the crisis. How did we get here? Historian Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz takes us through America's long, tortured relationship with guns in her deeply researched—and deeply disturbing— book Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment. In conversation with San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguía. FREE

Co-presented by Craig Newmark Philanthropies
