In this episode of PINcast, we talk with Brady Carlson, a public insight analyst and host of “All Things Considered” at New Hampshire Public Radio. In late February, NHPR wrapped up a weeklong series called “A Loaded Issue: Guns in New Hampshire.”

The series focused on the role of guns in New Hampshire life, with a look at New Hampshire’s gun laws; an explanation of the big business behind manufacturing guns; the story of parents being prosecuted in an accidental shooting; an exploration of the open-carry culture; and an examination of the efforts to repeal the state’s Stand Your Ground law. The series also featured online discussion questions. Many of the stories were heavily influenced by sources from the Public Insight Network.
