Bill Moyers:

When gun industry analyst Tom Diaz joined me on TV to talk about gun laws that make Americans more vulnerable, our substantial conversation lasted so long, we needed to extend it online.

In this web-only continuation, Diaz explores Florida's role as a testing ground for laws that make it easier to carry, conceal and use guns in public spaces, and the booming business of "enhanced lethality."

"The gun people like to say there are law-abiding people and there are bad people, and we want the law-abiding people to have guns," Diaz tells me. "I don't think humanity is that simple. Humanity is a complex of all kinds of people. Good people do bad things when they have access to guns."

I encourage you to watch our exchange, as well as Part 1 at BillMoyers.com.
