Episode #155: Guns, Palestinians, Tom Petty.

Despite Rosen’s best efforts at avoidance, this week the boys wade into the dominant news stories of the day, resulting in a half-hour about gun control. Would a constitutional amendment banning all private ownership of firearms cause a civil war? Should all Jews be armed? How many guns does one need to own an “arsenal?”

Eventually, Rosen pulls the show out of this track, just in time to focus on another topic in Goldbrener’s wheelhouse:

Would a unified Palestinian authority be good for the Jews?

One of your hosts knows a ton about the Middle East and has plenty to say about this, about Israeli-Palestinian (and Fatah-Hamas) relations, about the Israeli government and about the potential results of a unified Palestine. The other host just wants everyone to stop yelling.

R.I.P.
