In hour two of Here & Now's Feb. 28, 2018 full broadcast, we welcome political strategists Jamal Simmons and Alice Stewart join us to discuss the latest on the gun law debate, the Russia investigation, DACA and more. Also, President Trump's remark about the school resource officer who remained outside during the Florida school shooting sparked a national conversation about cowardice. We speak with Boston University professor Chris Walsh, who wrote a book on cowardice and its history. And the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act is up for reauthorization by Congress this fall.
