Nicole asks the question she's asked so many times in the past: What will it take to get our elected officials to do something about our gun epidemic? She talks about the elephant (and donkey) in the room with our resident Republican, John LeBoutillier, plus the Pope on climate change, Donald Trump for president, and more.
