A horrific massacre; outrage, sadness; calls for reform; and then — nothing. This is our nation’s “doleful ritual” in the wake of yet another mass shooting. In the wake of the mass murder in Atlanta, another community is now in mourning, and an aggrieved and bewildered nation again begins a conversation about possible legislative answers.

In this episode, Mayor Sam Weaver of Boulder speaks with Michael Isikoff, Daniel Klaidman and Victoria Bassetti about what his city has gone through and how it will be part of the gun control conversation to come. Then, Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., joins to talk about the politicization of gun reform, about whether we need new laws or agencies to tackle the rising threat of domestic terrorism, and about reviewing a close election in Iowa.

GUESTS:

  • Mayor Sam Weaver (@sampweaver), mayor of Boulder, Colo.

  • Rep. Elissa Slotkin (@RepSlotkin), U.S. congresswoman, D-Mich., chair of subcommittee on intelligence and counterterrorism
