    Philadelphia Daily News Columnist, Helen Ubiñas sits down with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller to talk about her recent article, “I bought an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle in Philly in 7 minutes.”

    On this one-year anniversary of the Emanuel AME Church shooting in South Carolina that claimed nine lives and last weekend’s mass murder at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando that has left 49 dead, and dozens more injured, Vice President Joe Biden today is calling for banning civilian ownership of assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines.
