Response to Stephen King's Gun Control Op-Ed: A Discussion


In this episode, Katherine Schweit and Sarah Ferris discuss an op-ed piece by author Stephen King on the pervasive gun problem in America. King's piece expresses frustration and suggests there may be no solution. The hosts disagree with this sentiment. Schweit shares her response, which she sent to the New York Times, highlighting that cultural change takes generations and that 'the gun problem' can be solved through persistence and grit. The hosts discuss the nuances of gun culture in the United States and argue that the culture can be unlearned with persistence and accurate information. They also discuss the potential deterrent effect of guns on individuals stepping up in dangerous situations.
