Diane talks with Rick Hasen, a law professor and expert on election administration. His new book is "Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat to American Democracy."
Following the mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, President Trump placed blame on mental illness. It’s a connection gun violence expert Jonathan Metzl calls the “the height of irresponsibility.”
Metzl says there are concrete steps we can take to prevent gun violence. But to do so effectively, he says, we must acknowledge the connection between white privilege and gun rights.
This an argument Metzl lays out in his new book “Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland.”
