Public Defenders Join With Gun Rights Activists

From Slate:

Mitchell is one of a number of public defenders who’ve sided with Second Amendment activists on this case.

On a recent episode of What Next, I spoke to Mitchell about why he opposes laws criminalizing gun possession, how he thinks about his right-wing allies in this case, and what he believes government should be doing to stop gun violence. Our conversation has been condensed and edited for clarity.
