Guests: Bob Mokos, Survivor Fellow, EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY; Jennifer Rosen Heinz, Leader/Trainer, MOMS DEMAND ACTIONS FOR GUN SENSE
“Rights don’t come without responsibility,” says Bob Mokos, a gun owner, retired military, airline pilot, NRA member, and a Survivor Fellow with EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY. Survivor Fellow means that Mokos has personally experienced the loss of a loved one at the hands of a gun. In 1986, his sister, Diane, was shot in the head as she was entering her car in a parking lot. The shooter was never caught. After the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, Mokos’ took his personal grief public.
EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities.
On this program, the first in a two-part series, Bob Mokos is joined by Jennifer Rosen Heinz with MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE. They discuss the Second Amendment, the gun lobby, the evolution of the NRA, mass shootings, guns in schools, and common sense steps that can be taken to reduce gun violence and make communities safer.
