On Dec. 2, 2015, in the city of San Bernardino, California, a city employee and his wife entered the Inland Regional Center armed with semi-automatic weapons and opened fire. Fourteen people were killed; 22 were injured. The terrorist attack left the community in tatters, changing the city and the national dialogue about security and home grown terrorists.

Just days later, Donald Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson visits the Inland Regional Center and talks with those involved about the attack and its aftermath.
