The Good of the Many: Gun Control and Individual Rights (29:00)

Protection of individual freedoms has long been the hallmark of American democracy and is one of the foundations upon which the Constitution and Bill of Rights are based. But at what point does the good of the many outweigh the freedom of the individual? This program examines the specific issue of gun ownership as an example of the ongoing tension between individual rights and the orderly functioning of American society. Featured in the program are Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America; Congressman Bill Carter (R-TX); and Professor Akhil Amar of Yale University Law School. (29 minutes)
