Deadlier Than Ever: Part 1 Auto Sears
Unregulated tactical accessories are making guns more lethal - Part I of a two-part series. This Tuesday, Radio GAG will explore the issue of unregulated tactical accessories, in a two-part series, starting with the "auto sear." Although AR-type rifles are often involved in mass shootings, handguns are actually the most used weapon. Handguns and ARs have now become more deadly than ever thanks to the auto sear, which will convert a conventional semi-automatic weapon into a fully automatic one for only $20. Radio GAG’s guest this week is Alain Stephens, who will explain the auto sear and how this little Lego-like device is challenging law enforcement as the death count rises. Our "In Memorium" will commemorate Stephen “Twitch” Boss, whose recent suicide shocked his many friends and fans. We will also hear from Jay W. Walker and Sonni Moon from the GAG march/rally for the victims of Monterey Park shooting.

More Ballots, Less Bullets
Tuesday 11.8.22 2:30 PM Radio GAG episode “More Ballots, Less Bullets” on WBAI.org 99.5 FM. Just how important is the issue of gun violence in the 2022 midterm election? In nearly every race in the 2022 midterm elections, candidates have declared their position on gun safety or gun rights hoping to attract the votes that will win them the office they seek. 88 Percent of Americans agree we need safer gun laws, but the NRA and the gun lobby have succeeded in at least eleven states passing “Second Amendment Sanctuary” laws that claim the state is not subject to Federal gun regulation. Meanwhile the gun safety groups from coast to coast have been activating to “get out the vote” like never before. These groups see voter participation and the election of progressive candidates as key to the regulations and policies that will bring down the relentless rise of gun deaths and injuries in America. Gun violence impacts our collective public safety and especially effects women, minorities, LBGTQ, children, youth and low income communities. Vote like your life depends on it, because it does. Hosts Sean Stefanic and Sarah Germain Lilly lay out the issues. Robert DeDominic contributes the Gun Violence Prevention News, and Sarah reports on election activism here in NYC and across the country. Thanks to Ti Cersley for producing our show and Frank Gargiulo for our graphics.

On the day after Halloween we explore the horror of “Permitless Carry,” the latest madness following the Supreme Court’s attack on state’s rights to regulate firearms for the safety of their citizenry. “Permitless Carry” is just what it sounds like, you need no qualifications to buy or carry a gun. No background check, no training, and no need for a license. Texas has already passed this law and Georgia and many other states are soon to follow. Okay Public Servants! Time to step up and protect children, minorities, LBGT communities and women from the relentless proliferation of weapons and violence in our communities. The silence is deafening. Host Sarah Germain Lilly lays out the issue and some of its consequences; for example a young girl who was killed when a man opened fire during a robbery. We continue to honor Domestic Violence Awareness month with words from Jay W. Walker during an event held by WARM, We All Really Matter, and their Harlem March to End Domestic Violence. Sean Stephanic contributes the In Memoriam, honoring Nicole Connors, 52 years old, 10/13/22, Raleigh, North Carolina.

Silence Hides Violence
Over half of all intimate-partner homicides are committed with guns. A woman is five times more likely to be murdered when her abuser has access to a gun. October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. On this episode of Radio GAG, we focus on the tragic relationship of violence that destroys lives across America and is a factor in too many mass shootings. Our “In Memoriam” honors the sister of domestic violence advocate Barbara Pierce Stowe. We will hear the latest gun violence prevention news: including a crop of lawsuits against firearms manufacturers and the interplay between the Second Amendment and the insurrectionists who rioted at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

We remember Naomi Judd in our In Memoriam and discuss the work of Ashley Judd in Suicide Awareness. -Gun suicide claims the lives of nearly 24,000 people in America every year. -Having access to a firearm triples one’s risk of death by gun suicide. -Six out of every 10 gun deaths in the US are suicides. https://www.everytown.org/issues/gun-suicide/

Activism: Back To School
After a summer of mass killings in Buffalo, NY, Uvalde, Texas and Highland Park, Illinois, and with the beginning of school almost here, it’s time to accelerate our activism. In June, SCOTUS ruled to curtail state’s rights to regulate gun ownership and that only ups the stakes for Gun Violence Prevention Groups. Still, Legislators crafted an assault weapons ban that passed our House of Representatives. President Biden used his executive power to address ghost guns and for the first time in decades, other modest gun regulations were signed into law. Yet the fight to save our children from school shootings is far from over. Radio GAG, the Gays Against Guns Show interviews X Gonzales, the young queer activist who rocked the world with their speech at the March For Our Lives in Washington DC in 2018. After completing their Senior Thesis, X is poised to inspire voters and the public by addressing the wrongs of white supremacy and the threat to human rights embodied by politicians like Ron Desantis. We also speak with Abbey Clements, teacher and survivor from Sandy Hook Elementary school, who talks about her work with Teachers Unify to End Gun Violence, a new group that is part of a growing trend to organize professionals to advocate for gun safety.
