63: the Risk of Xenophobia, Guns, and Coronavirus

One of the disturbing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic as been xenophobic and racist attacks on members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Incidents of hate crimes have created an atmosphere of discrimination and fear. As a result, many media outlets have reported on members of the AAPI community purchasing firearms.

To talk about the threat xenophobia, and these firearms, pose to the AAPI community, host JJ and Kelly Sampson are joined by David Inoue of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL). Together, we discuss why guns are not the solution to COVID-19 related hate crimes.
