First, [4:10] Sam Sinyangwe ([twitter.com profile] samswey) joins us to talk about how media coverage of the Las Vegas massacre largely ignored America’s long history of mass shootings, including the deadliest mass shooting ever, perpetrated by white supremacists. You can read Sam’s tweets about the topic here. We also discuss why gun control policies need to be conscious of race and racism, and why mixing sports and politics continues to be a good thing.

Next, [40:16] regular friend and ally of the pod Rick Wilson ([twitter.com profile] TheRickWilson) is back to point out the irony in the Right not being more alarmed by Trump’s expansion of federal power — in particular ICE and Homeland Security. We also discuss voting rights and Rick responds to a listener seeking advice on how to have productive conversations with conservatives about gun control in the wake of Vegas. Rick and Ana try and don’t entirely fail in modeling that conversation.
