Political Rewind: A Weekend Of Hate And Death

Aug 5, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, President Trump speaks out about the gun massacres in El Paso and Dayton. What did he say about solutions to an ongoing crisis of deadly shootings?


Georgia political leaders are responding to the weekend of violence. Polling has shown Georgians are in favor of new gun control, but are leaders looking to make changes?

The Anti-Defamation League, which monitors extremist organizations in the United States, described the El Paso massacre as the third deadliest act of violence by a domestic extremist in more than 50 years. Allison Goodman, the ADL’s Southeast regional director, joins us to talk about the rise of violent white nationalism.

Jim Galloway – Lead Political Writer, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
