The Evolving Gun Control Debate In America

In the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S., Morning Shift looks at the history of gun control in America with Adam Winkler, a UCLA professor who specializes in constitutional law. 

Also, Rocco from Clearing, calls in to tell how the shooting affected him. His father knows he's gay, but the two don't talk about it a lot, came down and gave Rocco and his boyfriend a hug and said he loved them. "This is the first time I've felt a hug of fear from him. It was a really sobering moment for both if us and it really started opening up a dialogue .. the issues and what's going on."

Rocco went on to say that this event goes so far beyond the community and affects people who you wouldn't think it would affect.
