The Million Mom March scheduled for Mother’s Day will advocate more gun control, but it won’t speak for all women or all mothers. A group called Second Amendment Sisters will also be on the national Mall to voice their support of Americans’ Constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. A panel talks about the flaws in proposals to restrict gun ownership rights.

Guests

  • David Kopel Independence Institute and associate policy analyst at the Cato Institute
  • John Lott Yale University
  • Melinda Gierisch Virginia coordinator of the Second Amendment Sisters
