Joining the team this week is Mighti Jamie, who is a multi-award-winning international Debating and Public Speaking champion. They have a candid conversation about Africa Day, using it as a time to reflect and plan the next 90 years. They then delve into the mass shootings in America, and how gun control could relate to South Africa.

    Hello Team, I enjoyed your exchange on Gun Violence in the US. As follow-on, would encourage you to listen to Richard Epstein (Hoover Institute) on “Can Gun Control prevent Mass Shootings” http://www.hoover.org/profiles/richard-epstein . As Gareth emphasised, there are really only a tiny minority of individuals who are so severely mentally sick that would actually go and do such a terrible thing. In a population of some 300 million, that “tiny minority” actually amounts to a few thousand people who are sick enough to go on such a suicide rampage. And then how do you actually try and spot these individuals, which is an interesting and rather hopeless if not depressing discussion.
