Sacramento’s Congregation B’Nai Israel will hold a gathering tonight in memory of the 11 people who were killed Saturday, Oct. 27 at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Penn., joining others across the country in gathering of solidarity.

The Political Junkie Ken Rudin discusses the synagogue shooting, its political implications and how speech can lead to violence. We'll also talk about about the pipe bombs mailed to prominent Democratic political figures, including California Sen. Kamala Harris. A package for her was intercepted Friday, Oct. 26 at a Sacramento-area post office.
