It’s a record no one wants to see broken again. Just 15 months since the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando became the deadliest mass shooting in modern-day U.S. history, here we are again. The country mourns dozens of people who were killed when a 64 year-old man fired into a crowd of 20,000 people. More than 500 others were injured. President Trump addressed the nation Monday morning with a message of unity, saying in moments like these “America comes together as one. And it always has.” Many in Congress echoed the President with thoughts and prayers for victims and their families. But others were furious with those thoughts and prayers, instead demanding real action. But based on recent congressional history, that seems unlikely. Jim Braude is joined by former president of the Boston NAACP Michael Curry, now the chair of the national NAACP Advocacy and Policy Committee, Boston Globe Ideas Editor Dante Ramos and Michael Astrue, the former Commissioner of Social Security under Presidents George W. Bush, to discuss the legislative paralysis in Congress and what can be done to break it.

In the aftermath of Sunday night’s shooting massacre in Las Vegas, many have offered help to the victims and survivors by donating blood and contributing to charities. The outpouring of support after a traumatic event is similar to what Bostonians saw four and half years ago in the wake the Marathon bombings. Three people were killed and hundreds of others were injured in that attack, and it was thanks to our many world-renowned hospitals, and the efforts of first responders that more people did not die that day. To discuss the lessons learned from the Marathon bombings, and how emergency response has changed since, Jim Braude is joined by Rep. Harold Naughton (D-Clinton), who is chair of the joint committee for public safety and homeland security, and Dr. David King of Mass. General Hospital’s Trauma Center, who ran the Boston Marathon in 2013 and aided victims after the bombing.

Jim weighs in on Donald Trump’s latest twitter feud, this time with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz over aid for hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico.
