US gun debate surges as NRA reacts to Florida

From Morning Report, 7:15 am on 23 February 2018

Seventeen students and staff were killed last week when a lone gunman went on a rampage at the Stoneman Douglas High School with an assault rifle. As the gun debate in the US grows, Andrew Patrick from the Washington-based Coalition to Stop Gun Violence joins us with his reaction.
