    State and University Politics vs Gun Control

    State and University Politics vs Gun Control

    Content Warning- this episode discusses gun violence and death.



    After the loss of Zijie Yan in August of 2023, UNC students are still calling on local and state legislature for gun control policies. Aditi and Aidan reflect on what that day felt like for them, how UNC has responded to students who feel their needs were unmet, and the link between a Republican state majority and little to no legislative change regarding gun control.
