In hour two of Here & Now's Oct. 12, 2017 full broadcast, New York Times reporter Thomas Gibbons-Neff tells us more about the recent ambush in Niger that left four members of a Green Beret unit dead, and U.S. military operations in West Africa. Also, after the Las Vegas massacre there have been renewed calls for gun control. But the larger debate over gun control has a long history in the U.S. And two German artists have just completed a project in which they dragged a large foam pen around the desert. Wolfgang Aichner and Thomas Huber explain the thinking behind the journey.
