Your Call 070908 Guns after Heller

What should the Left's position be on guns? On the next Your Call we'll discuss the impact of the Supreme Court decision that the 2nd Amendment protects an individual's right to bear arms, and overturned the legal tradition that the right was collective. So if guns can't be banned, what kind of regulation, if any, would create a safer, healthier world. We'll talk with anti-gun lefties, pro-gun feminists and a scholar who says gun laws have always been more about controlling the poor than they were about controlling guns. On the next Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
