In hour one of Here & Now's Jan. 3, 2018 full broadcast, we consider the impact of Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch's retirement announcement and the likelihood Mitt Romney will run to succeed him with Lisa Riley Roche of Deseret News. Also, amid Chicago’s ongoing epidemic of gun violence, the availability of guns has been blamed as a root cause. We hear a report on how authorities in the city are trying to crack down on people who deal unlawful weapons.

One veterinarian joins us with guidance. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
