Uvalde Mass Shooting and the Gun Control 2A Debate: Calmed with an Oban 14 Neat
We ease into a difficult and heated topic with lots of opinions, facts, and few answers with one of the Apes' favourite single malt Whiskeys - Oban 14. Dating back to 1794 and as one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland with only 2 pot stills, this style-defining "West Highland" malt is an absolute must for any whiskey collector. It's an incredible value for our European ape listeners as the pricing is nearly half what it is in America.Diving intotheir most complex topic to date, the apes stick to the facts. While America leads the guns per capita top 10 list, the Apes are surprised at the company of Switzerland, Finland, Cyprus, Sweden, and Canada....and less so at Yemen and Serbia. As the episode progresses we examine just what the Assault Weapons ban from 1994-2004 actually said, and discuss misconceptions about guns in America. The discussion ends without any clear answers or even consensus as a Churchill-sized cigar is waiting.
