Episode 269: Left of Bang
Kelly speaks with the five veterans who recently formed the gun violence prevention group Left of Bang, and who wrote an Op-Ed in Newsweek last week calling on gun owners and gun dealers to be part of the solution to the gun violence epidemic. They discuss what "left of bang" means, why they're raising their voices as military veterans, how gun owners can help police their own community, and how everyone can help these efforts.
- "Veterans: We Call on Gun Dealers and Responsible Owners to Prevent the Next Shooting | Opinion" by Travis Akers, Kristin Beck, Naveed Jamali, Naveed Shah and Fred Wellman. Newsweek on August 7, 2019.
