Republican governors across the nation are speaking out on the possibility of gun-law reform in numbers that have never been seen before, indicating the Parkland, Florida massacre may in fact be the catalyst that alters the fabric of the Second Amendment for good.

Host Ethan Bearman isn’t convinced individual states have the power to make a significant difference though. He believes new gun restrictions need to be implemented on a federal level for their effects to be felt, something he doesn’t foresee happening with the NRA essentially guarding Congress.

However, Washington Post reporter Michael Scherer said that isn’t the case at all. States do have the power to make an impact!

He joined Bearman to explain why. Listen to their conversation below.
