About this Episode

On today's episode of The Brian Nichols Show, Brian digs into the aftermath of the Parkland shooting, including the push from those survivors push for gun control. In this episode, Brian breaks down the eerily similar parallels that exist between the likes of the modern gun control movement and the Prohibition movement of the early 20th century.

While David Hogg, like Carry Nation, experienced traumatic moments in their lives, does that make them more credible in terms of their advocacy for taking away law-abiding citizen's rights? Do we ignore the potential unintended consequences of policy when we believe that the policy is moral, noble, virtuous, and just?
