Following the tragic events of the largest mass shooting in U.S. history at an LGBT friendly night club in Orlando, Florida, Brian kicks off the show with his thoughts on the tragedy, its aftermath, and the conversations that have been taking place ever since the harrowing events of Sunday morning. ABC News’ Jim Ryan calls in with an update from Orlando, and Brian discusses the role the media should play in covering events like mass shootings with the crew. Shifting to a lighter mood, Brian also recounts the story of Girl Scout Cookies gone awry, then welcomes Karen Conti to the studio to discuss second amendment rights, give her expert opinion on the judge’s verdict in the rape trial of Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner, and, as always, answer legal questions from listeners.
