Following two mass shootings, President Donald Trump used a national address to support “red flag” laws, which intensified both a national and local debate over guns.

In this episode of the Politically Georgia podcast, host Greg Bluestein and AJC Washington correspondent Tamar Hallerman discuss how Georgia officials and 2020 candidates reacted to the idea of “red flag” legislation in Georgia, where residents stand, and how the gun debate may impact Georgia in 2020, from the legislative session to the November elections.
