The horrifying school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School shocked the conscience of the nation and has led to impassioned pleas to Washington to finally take action to rein in gun violence. Will those calls be heeded, or will the powerful gun lobbies yet again carry the day?
Our guest, Shikha Hamilton, is Vice President of the California Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, which educate and mobilize their communities to advocate for sensible responsible gun laws, regulations, and public policies at the local, state, and national levels.
