Episode 23

Episode 23 examines the mass shooting that took place on Valentine’s Day at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

I analyse the latest gun control debate talking points such as mental health playing a part in why mass shootings take place and placing a ban on assault rifles.

I take a look at President Trump’s recent comments that seem to indicate that he is willing to take some action to change the gun laws.

I evaluate the discussion about arming teachers to deter potential school shooters and explain that while it’s an idea worth considering, it has many flaws.

I also assess the issue of guns in Ireland and consider the gun crime problem that is evident despite Ireland’s strict gun laws.
