Domestic violence is a predictor for gun violence, yet we have a problem enforcing laws that strip firearms from domestic abusers. Jon talks with head writer Chelsea Devantez about her experiences with these issues, possible solutions...and also, somehow, puppet TV shows from the '70s. Jon then talks with bounce musician Big Freedia about her documentary, Freedia Got a Gun, and how gun violence has affected her hometown of New Orleans.
