On Nov. 27, the Council of Churches of Western Massachusetts hosted a summit on church security. Pictured, Assistant US Attorney Kevin O'Regan, left, talks to attendees.

This December marked five years since the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Twenty first-graders and six adults were gunned down. 

Following the massacre, the state enacted some of the toughest gun laws in the nation. We bring you a report from partner station WNPR on the impact these laws have had.

We also hear a report about clergy in New England making security preparations following an increase in attacks on houses of worship.

And we check in with two member of Congress who represent western Massachusetts. They've both called on President Trump to release his tax returns, but -- as Congress debates major tax legislation -- these politicians have not released copies of their own taxes.

Also on this episode: a commentary from writer Susan Campbell, in which she shares her own devastating #MeToo story; and an interview about Merriam-Webster's decision to make "feminism" its word of the year.
