8.9.22 Radio GAG Assault Weapons Ban

Why can’t we have an assault weapons ban?  Assault weapons are used in most mass shootings that have killed and wounded terrifying numbers of people in public places. So why did our Congress allow the Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 to expire in 2004? Why is it so difficult to get this ban passed on a Federal level when increasing numbers of innocent people and communities are terrorized with greater and greater frequency?

Gays Against Guns founding member Jay W. Walker explains the background story of why we can’t get a gun safety bill of this nature through Congress.

Meanwhile Gays Against Guns will be represented at the 2022 Women’s Convention in Houston Texas by activist Brigid McGinn and Radio GAG producer Sarah Germain Lilly.  Women’s March Organizer Kim Parker Russell joins us to talk about the 2022 Women’s Convention, reproductive rights, domestic violence and other issues of self determination on Radio GAG.

Our In Memoriam remembers those who died in mass killings in El Paso, Texas and  Dayton, Ohio on a hot July weekend in 2019.

Join us in the fight against gun violence. Tuesday, 8.9.22 at 2:30 PM on WBAI.org, 99.5 FM and on your favorite podcast platforms.
