Rep. Quigley: U.S. Spending Too Much On Nukes, Not Enough To Combat Gun Violence

It’s called the Emerging Threats Subcommittee, and it discusses trends in national security. Much of what the committee discusses is secret, but Congressman Mike Quigley from Chicago’s North Side is on that committee.

Quigley recently sat down with WBEZ’s Tony Arnold to talk about the work and what he sees as some of the country’s misplaced spending priorities when it comes to national security.
