With open arms: on permitless carry and the new generation of guns rights activists

Permitless carry is the law in more than twenty states, even though it’s unpopular with the vast majority of gun owners. Rachel Monroe, author of Savage Appetites: True Stories of Women, Crime, and Obsession, joins web editor Violet Lucca to discuss her latest report on the small, vocal groups of gun activists who are agitating to expand this right. The two also break down the false ideas that shape gun legislation in the U.S.—of the typical gun owner, a good guy with a gun, and of a purer past of gun ownership—along with an upcoming Supreme Court case that could lead to more armed people than ever before.
