Lucy McBath: Jordan, Orlando, and the Idolatry of Guns (podcast)
Once again, America awoke to the reality of another mass shooting, this time arguably the worst in US history. And once again, Congress seems unable, or unwilling, to act in any meaningful ways to put an end to this violence.
Today we will talk with Lucy McBath, who became an activist after her son, Jordan Davis, was killed by Michael Dunn, who claimed he felt threatened by Davis and his friends and sought protection by Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law. We will talk with Lucy about Jordan, Orlando, the future of gun violence in America, and the idolatry that lies behind the belief that guns provide security.
