Moderated by David Greene, Livingston judge and host of “Morning Edition,” NPR, Livingston Award co-winners Shoshana Walter and Ryan Gabrielson discussed the findings of their Center for Investigative Reporting investigation on the haphazard system of lax laws and weak screening standards for armed security guards. Their series “Hired Guns,” won the 2015 Livingston Award for National Reporting.
