Soledad O’Brien sits down with Colin Goddard, a survivor of the 2007 mass shooting at Virginia Tech whose hip and knee still contain bullets shot by the murderer. He and Soledad discuss his views on why Congress fails to place restrictions on gun rights, even those supported by the majority of Americans. Then, we check in with Puerto Rican anchor Luz Velez on what she sees on the ground and Resident Commissioner Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon, the sole congressional representative of 3.5 million Puerto Ricans, joins Soledad to discuss what she is seeing on the island and her assessment of the federal government’s response to the disaster. Finally, Dr. Rahul Gupta, West Virginia’s State Health Officer, details the history of the opioid crisis that ravages his state and explains the difficulty of stopping illegal use while appropriately treating those with chronic pain.
