Episode 8: Bitches in the Basement

Last weekend a gunman killed 59 people and injured 500 more in Las Vegas. We get into it in a big way here. We talk about:

-mental illness and violence
-the profile of mass shooters
-toxic masculinity
-reasonable gun control

You can find information about the link between masculinity and shooting here, herehere, and here.

You can find more about the link (or lack thereof) between mental illness and gun violence here, here, and here, with a bonus article about suicide and guns here.

You can find some limited research about gun control laws and their efficacy in the CNN article we referenced on the podcast. You can also check out this article that overviews gun control around the world, and this Atlantic article talking about the lack of data.
