Weaponizing Narratives: Why America Wants Gun Control But Doesn’t Have It

4/14/2020; 85 minutes

If having a gun really made you safer, then America would be one of the safest countries in the world. It's not. Gary Younge (Manchester University) explains that while Americans consistently favor more gun control, gun laws have generally become more lax. That is partly due to the material resources of the gun lobby. But it is also about the central role of the gun, what it represents in the American narrative, and the inability of gun control advocates to develop a counter-narrative. Recorded on 03/04/2020.
