Mass shooting and the lack of any policy action leads this week's review of the political news.

Becki Gray of the John Locke Foundation and Rob Schofield of the N.C. Justice Center discuss the impediments to change, and also whether they hold any optimism about the state legislature considering gun proposals in the short-term. Also, a report out this week indicates the interim president of the UNC System failed to disclose millions of dollars he earned while serving on private corporate boards.

A note to listeners: This episode was recorded before N.C. Treasurer Dale Folwell relented on his push to transform how the State Health Plan reimburses medical providers. The topic is disussed in this episode of the Week in Politics. To read more about Folwell's decision, follow WUNC's coverage here.
