Political Season = Gun Buying Season (5.13.2013)

Larry Hyatt runs one of the biggest gun shops in the country, and he tells host Dick Gordon that as some politicians have tried to tighten gun legislation, he’s seen a growing demand for “high capacity” guns. Also in this show: William Vizzard, who tracked down firearms for almost three decades, talks about laws that helped his work; Jay Wachtel, a veteran firearms trafficking investigator, talks about the man power needed to bust a gun ring; Malcolm Shabazz, who was killed last week in Mexico, spoke to Dick in 2011 about his grandfather Malcolm X.
