Victoria M Rodríguez-Roldán, the Trans/Gender Non-Conforming Justice Project Director at the National LGBTQ Task Force, joins host JJ to talk about the intersections between gun violence, disability, and COVID-19, and how — contrary what the NRA says — the solution to structural inequality is not "buy more guns."
