Gun and bikeshare regulations are coming, and not everyone is pleased


Seattle is working on two thorny regulatory challenges. The NRA is suing the city over a new gun storage laww and new rules are being considered on bikeshare companies. Robert Spitzer, gun policy expert at SUNY Cortland, is a member of both the NRA and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. He spoke with Bill Radke about the two sides of the issue.
