Apple News podcast talks with McWhirter and Elinson about American Gun

On the "Apple News In Conversation" podcast, host Shumita Basu sat down in a New York studio to talk with Cameron McWhirter and Zusha Elinson about American Gun: The True Story of the AR-15.


Some quotes:

CAMERON MCWHIRTER on why the AR-15 was developed: One of the biggest questions in the military after World War II was, How do we get a weapon that is lighter for our soldiers when they go into combat?

ZUSHA ELINSON on the assault-weapons ban of 1994: [W]hat happens after the ban goes into effect is that there are actually more AR-15s made in the next 10 years, when it’s supposedly banned, than there have been made the 30 prior years.
