Melissa Harris-Perry and her guests on Sunday discussed whether the best answer to gun violence is ending the “War on Drugs.”
About 800 people die every year as a result of gang violence, Harris-Perry said, “a large percentage of which are connected to drug trafficking.”
When it comes to gun violence, “maybe ending the War on Drugs is the best gun control measure we can enact,” as many violent gangs would no longer have a lucrative business in prohibited substances.
