No Guns (Part I): This Isn’t Just A Mental Health Issue (#91)

No Guns (Part I): This Isn’t Just A Mental Health Issue (#91)

As I am often fond of saying on this show: “I don’t mean to get political. Except, that, I do.” And while I hate to become a show that is only immersed in current events, the issue of Guns and Gun Control in our culture seems to be reaching critical mass lately, and it is on my mind quite a bit right now.

So, here’s some stuff I gathered on the subject of guns, with the real motive being to play the extended cut from Negativland’s radio program from 1989 where they addressed this very issue. The last half hour of the program is a piece they made and broadcast, not just on their show, but for New American Radio, who originally commissioned the piece. Since the radio show is, well, their show, I’ve “rounded up” and included a good 30 minutes from the original three hour broadcast. I’ll probably dig out more from it as I continue my own journey into the subject.

But, for right now, enjoy this meditation of something a little more topical, mixed with some old shit, too.

Enjoy!
