There’s No Such Thing As A Good Guy With A Gun, Episode 1339

A sober look at Saturday’s massacre of African Americans in Buffalo. The shooting was partly because of white supremacy. But the REAL reason for the shooting is it’s too easy for every lunatic in America to get their hands on an assault weapon. Our nation’s gun laws are an act of collective suicide. We choose weapons over peace. We prefer profits for arms manufacturers over our own security. From guns to for profit healthcare Americans are killing themselves in the name of Mammon. Preview of Tuesday’s primaries: North Carolina: Madison Cawthorn; Pennsylvania: State Sen. Doug Mastriano, Dr. Oz, and Summer Lee; Oregon: Jamie McLeod-Skinner, Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) CORRECTION: David identified Congresswoman Liz Cheney as representing Idaho. She represents Wyoming. We are sorry for both the mistake and the fact that there is a Wyoming or an Idaho.
