The belief that the Second Amendment guarantees every individual the right to possess and carry any sort of gun anywhere is exceptionally recent. Guest on this show is Alternet senior fellow Stephen Rosenfeld, who has written a series of articles revealing history that is very inconvenient to the 2013 leadership of the NRA. He reveals that gun rights and gun control have existed side by side steadily since America’s founding. And he also shows that the NRA leadership itself favored reasonable gun regulations until an internal coup in 1977. This is a fascinating history, which should be very useful to move us forward.
