One week ago, a 15-year-old domestic terrorist walked into Oxford High School murdering 4 students and injuring 7 more. Why does this keep happening? Why aren’t we doing more to stop these things from happening? Why are there more guns than people in this country? These and so many other questions have been rattling around in my brain over the past week. Shannon Watts joins helps us navigate these important questions today.

Shannon Watts is the founder of the nation’s largest grassroots group fighting against gun violence, Moms Demand Action, with chapters in every state effecting change at the local, state and national level. Her book, Fight Like a Mother: How a Grassroots Movement Took on the Gun Lobby and Why Women Will Change the World, was released in May of 2019.
