139: How the Filibuster is Killing Us

The filibuster has a complex history and an even more complicated present, having become an instrument of partisan gridlock which allows a minority of the Senate's members to halt the chamber's progress -- inaction which often has major implications for gun violence prevention. To discuss what the filibuster is, what it means for Americans and gun violence prevention, and efforts to end or reform it, hosts Kelly and JJ are joined by Brady’s VP of Policy Christian Heyne, Just Democracy’s Stasha Rhodes, and Fix Our Senate’s Eli Zupnick.
