Summary

In this episode, Dr. Cornelius discusses the importance of the 2nd Amendment in our current culture. In the wake of mass shootings in the United States and abroad, sales for assault weapons have risen dramatically. While citizens are certainly entitled to exercise their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms, is the proliferation of weapons where we really need to be?

The recent nonviolent protests by members of the U. S. House of Representatives are also discussed. Are these methods outdated? Should they be encouraged?
