First, Dana interviews Uvalde State Sen. Roland Gutierrez about law enforcement waiting over an hour to breach the classroom at Robb Elementary School, whether the delay may have cost lives, and Gutierrez confronting Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to push for a special session to raise the minimum age of gun ownership from 18 to 21. Next, Dana interviews Democratic Whip Sen. Dick Durbin about the bipartisan group of Senators in Washington who, after years of inaction, are working on a compromise bill to tackle gun violence. Will things be different this time?
Then, Dana speaks with Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas about law enforcement accountability for the Uvalde shooting response and his stances on universal background checks, a new red flag law and raising the minimum gun ownership age to 21. After, Dana goes one-on-one with Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger about why he changed his mind to back some gun restrictions, how the GOP is “frightened of the loudest voices” on guns and Kevin McCarthy’s decision not to comply with a January 6 subpoena as it stands.
Finally, Dana speaks with the Director of Children’s Services at Hill Country MHDD, Melissa Ramirez, about how her organization is preparing to help grieving Texans following the Uvalde massacre.
