Violence Policy Center's Joshua Sugarmann On Preventing Gun Violence


It's been a month since the deadliest mass shooting in American history when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of people at a festival in Las Vegas.

In the wake of that violence, federal legislation to ban "bump stocks" — used by the shooter to modify his weapons to make them more deadly — has languished.

Joshua Sugarmann, executive director of the Violence Policy Center, a gun control advocacy group based in Washington D.C., recently joined Beth Ruyak in studio.

Insight contacted the National Rifle Association, and we will provide an update once we receive their comments on the interview.
