August 20, 2019: San Jose Mayor On Gun Insurance; Native American Voters

Download Audio

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo has proposed introducing a gun insurance requirement for all gun owners except police, less than a month after a mass shooting in Gilroy, just south of the city. Proponents say it's a common sense, market-based solution to reduce gun violence and defray the cost of tens of thousands of deaths each year from guns — a cost often paid by taxpayers and victims. Critics worry about increasing illegal gun ownership and violating the constitutional rights of gun owners. Also, on Tuesday, Democratic presidential hopefuls will address the first presidential candidates forum focused entirely on Native American issues in more than a decade. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's August 20, 2019 full broadcast.
