THE ROTUNDA - In the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting that left 49 victims dead and another 53 injured, the deadliest shooting in recent U.S. history, Gov. Rick Scott dodges the gun control debate by focussing policy talks on ISIS and saying the Second Amendment didn’t kill anyone. On Trimmel Gomes’ latest episode of The Rotunda, Maura Jane Farrelly, an associate professor of American studies at Brandeis University explains why the often used defense and whole purpose of the Second Amendment is moot. Gomes also takes a closer look at the face-off between CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. Christian Ulvert, one of the plaintiffs in the fight to overturn Florida’s gay marriage-ban, tells Gomes what he thinks Bondi should’ve said when Cooper questioned her history of fighting against the LGBT community as she was trying to lend a voice to the victims.
Are you tired of apologizing for being an American? Gomes talks with a self-described loud, arrogant, and sometimes troublesome American who supports Donald Trump and has ideas on how to reform the political process in Washington, D.C.
