Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn says the city's next gun buyback will be different. Last month, the city's first buyback program in 20 years took in more than 700 pistols and rifles (and a missile launcher tube used for training). It also saw an impromptu gun show unfold downtown as private buyers snapped up guns for themselves. Mayor McGinn joins us in the studio to talk gun laws. We’ll also discuss his decision to shut down the Seattle Police Department's drone program and why surveillance cameras along Alki in West Seattle won’t be turned on just yet.
