After Recent Massacres, What Do Gun Control Advocates Want?

Gun control advocates are demanding bolder actions be taken by lawmakers and major gun retailers after dozens were murdered in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio by lone gunmen.

Democracy Now! speaks with Kris Brown, president of gun reform organization Brady, and Igor Volsky, executive director of Guns Down America, about how to curb the current gun violence epidemic in America.

"If you're looking at an epidemic that claims 40,000 lives a year, you need a multipronged solution," says Brown.
