Friday, November 15, 2013

In an interview that originally aired in December of last year, Bob talks to Adam Winkler, author of Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms In America, who says there was a time, relatively recently, in fact, when the NRA Supported gun control legislation, and the staunchest defenders of so-called "gun rights" were on the radical left.

Backstory: The Debate Over Gun Control in America

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Adam Winkler examines America's four-centuries-long political battle over gun control and the right to bear arms.
