On this episode of South Carolina Lede, we look at the intersection of gun violence and politics following the recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. Host Gavin Jackson is joined by The Associated Press' Meg Kinnard and The Post and Courier's Jamie Lovegrove to discuss local reaction, responses by the 2020 presidential candidates, and the status of both state and national legislation concerning guns.

Then, South Carolina Public Radio's Russ McKinney stops by to quiz Gavin about South Carolina history in this week's Did You Know segment.
