OA95: The Great SIO Crossover & We Defend Milo!

Today’s show is a companion to Episode 67 of Serious Inquiries Only regarding the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994.

We begin, however, with a question about progressivity and fines from listener Noah Lugeons.

In the main segment, Andrew tells the story of how Michael Dukakis, Slayer, and race-baiting by Newt Gingrich led to the worst aspects of the omnibus crime bill.

Next, the guys cover perhaps their most anticipated “Breakin’ Down the Law” ever:  defending Milo Yiannopoulos, along with the ACLU.

Finally, we end with the answer to Thomas Take the Bar Exam Question #36 regarding defamation.  And don’t forget to play along by following our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and/or our Facebook Page and quoting the Tweet or Facebook Post that announces this episode along with your guess and reason(s)!
