Preet Bharara and Joyce Vance dedicate the entire episode of CAFE Insider to the issues stemming from last week’s horrific school shooting tragedy in Uvalde, Texas. They provide in-depth analysis of law enforcement’s delayed response to the incident and what comes next.
In this sample from the show, Preet and Joyce discuss the likelihood that Congress enacts gun safety legislation in response to the massacre, and the range of potential proposals, including background checks, “red flag” laws, and raising the minimum age to purchase assault rifles to 21 years old.
In the full episode, they discuss the shifting timeline of the attack provided by police leadership, and the Department of Justice’s investigation into the police’s handling of the matter.
This podcast is brought to you by CAFE Studios and Vox Media Podcast Network.
