In Episode 25 of District of Conservation, Gabriella discusses a wide swath of trending and breaking topics. 

First, she discusses how keen House Democrats are with gun confiscation, rather than working to actually reduce gun violence. H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112 may pass through the House of Representatives today or mid-week, and that would be alarming.
