There's one gun for every man, woman and child in the United States of America. American gun deaths per capita far exceeds that of any other country in the developed world. Despite some progress, mass shootings especially are becoming more frequent and more spectacular. And yet, America cannot seem to muster the moral courage or the legislative will to do something about the gun problem. To better understand why this is, I interview Dr. Robert J. Spitzer, author of Guns across America: Reconciling Gun Rules and Rights. For more about Robert and his work, follow him on Twitter @spitzerb.
