The Democratic Party has been in a crisis since the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. It has lost its leadership role in Congress with the Republicans ruling both the House and Senate.

We hear from Congressman Gregory Meeks on how the party plans to regroup as the country faces challenges exacerbated by controversial Trump administration policies.

At a time when the country is reeling from gun violence and mass shootings, an advancement in technology is making it possible for anyone to produce 3D printable guns in their own home.

All they would need are the blueprints which were scheduled to be available for downloading this past week until a judge blocked the release.
