In this episode, Mike Riley gives us a very in depth and thorough evaluation of gun rights versus voting privileges. This past week we saw another mass shooting happen in the United states. Mass shooting after mass shooting continues to happen however many of the Republicans in the United states Congress say there is absolutely nothing we can do about it. While Democrats are calling for assault weapons bans, gun control and universal background checks, Republicans say that trying to stop mass casualty events which involve firearms from occurring in the United states is a futile effort. At the same time the Republican Party is laser focused on try to curb voter fraud, a crime which very rarely occurs in this country. Why is it that it's so easy to do something about voter fraud, which hardly ever happens, but so hard to do something about mass shootings, which happen all the time? Why is it that owning a gun is considered a right and voting is considered a privilege? Mike breaks it all down.
