Base Code

Fighting Words-America's Second Amendment

In June of 1971, US government agents shot an NRA member in his home. This event started a change in language and politics that exposed deep beliefs about guns in America, changes that ultimately established an individual right to a gun. Base Code looks underneath the language and culture to reveal the true drivers of this change. In this episode, Harry shops for guns at a local supermarket, we learn about the word 'right' and the thinking behind it, and try to understand why 3% of Americans own half of the country's 300 Million guns.
