A new group is leading the charge against America’s gun policies. NRA vs. US Youth, who wins? Now that we’ve heard the young people’s voices that are outraged over the most recent gun violence, will they be able to make political change in Washington DC? It’s the power of the young person on social media taking on the most powerful lobby in the country, the National Rifle Association.
In this episode of Behind the Media with Dan Lothian and Jimmy Young, the two veteran broadcast journalists give their perspective. Is this the beginning of a new protest era in US History? Our hosts compare this movement to what happened in the 1960’s when the USA was involved with an unpopular war in Vietnam. Young people led that protest that eventually got the US out of the war. Will the power of the young people overcome the might and financial resources of the NRA?
Only time will tell. Dan and Jimmy set the table.
