Guns, Money, & Hate w/@TUSK81 & @joshua_eaton #Orlando — #KatieSpeakShow Ep41 06/18/2016

In brief: Gabe Ortiz wrote a moving op-ed in the hours following the Orlando shooting; I’m grateful that he was willing to spend some time with me during such a hard week. Joshua Eaton’s work on gun laws and dedication to investigative journalism is a public service. He went hard in on the legislators sending “thoughts and prayers” to the Orlando victims’ families who have taken donations from pro-gun organizations.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
