Jeffrey Rosen, CEO and President of the National Constitution Center, is the guest on this episode about the Second Amendment.

What were the Founders hoping to achieve in ratifying The Second Amendment?  When did the U.S. start regulating guns? What qualifies as arms? We’ll seek out constitutional consensus on a topic where common ground is hard to find.”
