WBEZ criminal and legal affairs reporter Robert Wildeboer continues his week-long series on the differences between gun violence in Chicago and Toronto. Then, Eight Forty-Eight speaks with experts about the paths firearms take from the point of manufacturing to when they end up illegally on our streets. And now that Congress has reached a deal on the debt, Eight Forty-Eight talks about how politicians and media played out the process for constituents ahead of a Senate vote. The show fields calls, e-mails and tweets from listeners about what they heard during the talks.
