At the end of July, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin finally stopped holding up a climate, energy and tax package. The Inflation Reduction Act is a huge bill that some say, if passed, could transform America's policy on climate change and energy. As luck would have it, we already had New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich coming into the NMPBS studio to talk about climate change legislation. On this episode of the podcast, Laura Paskus talks with Heinrich about the Inflation Reduction Act, as well as a bill related to wildlife and another that would designate a stretch of the Gila River in New Mexico as Wild and Scenic. The conversation also delves into Holtec International's plans to bring commercial nuclear waste to New Mexico, gun reform, and January 6.

Author and editor Chris Hayes joins the podcast to talk about his latest book, " God and Guns: The Bible Against American Gun Culture."Using the Bible as the foundational source and guide, while also bringing contemporary sociological data to the conversation, seven biblical scholars and theologians construct a powerful dialogue about gun violence in America, concluding that guns are incompatible with the God of Christian Scripture. God and Guns is the first book to argue against gun culture from a biblical studies perspective. Bringing the Bible into conversation with contemporary sociological data, the volume breaks new exegetical and critical ground and lays the foundations for further theological work. The scholars assembled in this volume construct a powerful argument against gun violence, concluding that a self-identity based on guns is incompatible with Christian identity. Drawing on their expertise in the Bible's ancient origins and modern usage, they present striking new insights involving psychology, ethics, race, gender, and culture. This collection, carefully edited for clarity and readability, will change conversations—and our culture.Contributors include T. M.

A little more than a week after President Biden signed a gun safety bill that was touted as the most significant piece of gun legislation to clear Congress in 30 years, yet another young man opened fire on a crowd, this time, at a fourth of July parade in an affluent suburb of Chicago. The shooter, reportedly disguised as a woman, fled to his mother's home, took her car, and took off. Police apprehended him about a few hours later. The attack appears to have been planned for several weeks. He shot 70 rounds of ammunition, killing seven people. Dozens of others were injured in the chaos. On June 23rd, the day before the House sent the gun bill to the President for his signature, in a closely watched case in New York, the Supreme Court loosened restrictions on carrying concealed weapons. Yesterday, MD Gov. Larry Hogan directed Police to “immediately suspend” the criteria for reviewing applications for permits to carry concealed weapons, dumping the so-called ‘good and substantial reason' standard. As Nathan Sterner has been reporting, Hogan said his direction was “in line with actions taken in other states in response to the recent supreme court ruling.” In fact, New York moved immediately to expand permit requirements and revise their statutes to limit guns in certain locations. MD Senate President Bill Ferguson has vowed to enact similar legislation in the 2023 session. We begin today with where Congress, the Court and the country are on the subject of guns.Theodoric Meyer of the Washington Postjoins me. He is a national political reporter and a co-author of the Early 202 newsletter. He's been covering the debate over gun control legislation, as well as developments in the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

Congress may be about to pass the biggest gun safety bill in a generation. On the heels of the bipartisan gun reform agreement in the US Senate, @Mosheh speaks with an activist who has been on the front lines of the fight for a decade for some insight into what this means. Shannon Watts is the founder of advocacy group, Moms Demand Action. Watts was a stay at home mother to five when the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012 inspired her to do something about gun violence. She turned her Facebook message to 75 friends into the nation's largest grassroots anti-gun violence movement. Moms Demand Action now has more than 8 million supporters, making it larger than the NRA. Our conversation dived into the history of the fight, whether the new legislation will actually pass the Senate and what happens after that. Watts also talked about what she learned growing up in a family that owned guns, how she seeks to find a middle ground on the issue, what inspires her optimism and her concept of "losing forward," (aka how losing fights to the NRA has helped her cause).

As the nation reels from the recent mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, we look at why efforts to enact comprehensive laws to reduce gun violence are failing. Reveal's Najib Aminy tells the story of a former lobbyist for the NRA, who explains how another school shooting years ago polarized the political debate about guns and all but eliminated the chances for compromise. Then, host Al Letson speaks with reporter Alain Stephens from The Trace. Stephens has been tracking how technology is making guns more lethal and says one of the most troubling inventions is something called an auto sear. These tiny devices can turn pistols and rifles into machine guns. He also brings us up to date on his effort to force the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to share data about police guns that end up being used in crimes. Reveal sued the ATF on his behalf, and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently came down with a decision. We end with a discussion with Reveal's Jennifer Gollan, who last fall completed a groundbreaking investigation about homicides by intimate partners convicted of domestic abuse. Her reporting led to a rare moment of consensus on Capitol Hill and new provisions in the recently reauthorized Violence Against Women Act.
