The AR-15 style rifle is famous or infamous, depending on whom you ask. Celebrated by some as "America's Rifle," it is also notorious for its use in multiple mass shootings. For any of us inclined to engage in debates about access to the AR-15, especially if we debate gun enthusiasts who use and know the weapon, it behooves us to be informed. Preparing this podcast allowed me to learn more, particularly (though not exclusively) through my conversation with John Ismay, a New York Times reporter. I invite you to listen if you're curious.
