If you’re a fan of this podcast, you probably recognize this week’s guest. Having just finished his debut book, “Guns Down: How to Defeat the NRA and Build a Safer Future with Fewer Guns,” Igor Volsky, a former Thinking CAP co-host and current executive director of Guns Down America, joined the pod to discuss his new project and lay out his vision to reduce the number of guns in the U.S. by raising the standard of ownership. Volsky, a former journalist, breaks down the current state of the gun violence prevention movement; the National Rifle Association's outsize influence on shaping the national debate; and why the movement to reduce guns and gun deaths is finally picking up momentum in all corners of the country.
