Salt Lake City, UT – As four gun-related bills wind their way through Utah's Capitol Hill, the community is still trying to make sense of the February 12 Trolley Square shooting.

Monday on RadioWest, we'll hear from both sides of this divisive issue, and ask what role American culture plays in fueling the debate.
