On Saturday, Biden signed legislation designed to prevent people convicted of domestic abuse from owning a gun and increase the prevalence of state "red flag" laws.

The new law comes just days after the Supreme Court's conservative majority ruled there is a constitutional right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense, striking down a long-standing New York law that restricted concealed carry.

This episode: congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, WNYC reporter Jon Campbell, and senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro.
