Party Politics: Is Gun Reform Possible?

Co-hosts Brandon Rottinghaus and Jeronimo Cortina delve into the latest news in national and local politics.

U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks about Monday’s mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado, in the State Dining Room at the White House on March 23, 2021 in Washington, DC. Ten people were shot and killed at the King Soopers grocery store in Boulder and police have charged Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa of Arvada, a suburb of Denver, with first-degree murder. This massacre comes less than a week after another mass shooting killed eight people — six of them women of Asian descent — at three spas in the Atlanta area.

This week on Party Politics, co-hosts Brandon Rottinghaus and Jeronimo Cortina discuss the renewed calls for gun reform after a new spike in mass shootings, former Missouri governor Eric Greitens’ senate bid, and attorney Lee Merritt’s run for Texas AG, among other stories.
