With guns in the news a lot of late — Wayne LaPierre recently announced his resignation from the NRA and, yesterday, the DOJ concluded an investigation that found “unimaginable failure” with police in Uvalde — I spoke with Professor Andrew C. McKevitt of Louisiana Tech. 

In Gun Country: Gun Capitalism, Culture, and Control in Cold War America, Professor McKevitt traces many of the origins of our gun culture to the years following World War II. Then, one entrepreneur made a lot of money flooding the market with guns, and Congress arrived at arguably its most consequential crossroads in addressing our gun problem.
