The #guncontrol debate "closely mirrors" larger issues of culture clash in America, says New York Times columnist David Brooks. For Brooks, gun control -- an issue that's grown in scale since the #LasVegasShooting left 58 dead last week -- is a "proxy" for people of different income or education levels or who live in opposing regions to argue their perspectives.

Mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, took aim at President Trump following his visit to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico on Tuesday. Cruz, who has consistently asked for more aid recovering from #HurricaneMaria, said that it was fine for President Trump to criticize her as he did on Twitter last weekend if it means more awareness will be raised about how devastated Puerto Rico really is. #PuertoRico #news #Trump #hurricanerecovery #naturaldisaster
Kevin Montalban stands in front on his destroyed #home in Cidra, central #PuertoRico. During #HurricaneMaria, he saved his neighbor from drowning inside her own house. Now he lives in a school-turned-shelter with his 12-year-old son and about 50 other residents. Watch Kevin's story, as told by @monicavillamizar, on our website: pbs.org/newshour.

"It's very clear that the White House does not want to have that conversation" about #guncontrol after Sunday night's shooting in #lasvegas, NPR's Tamara Keith said on Monday night's show. She explained the grim #political routine past presidents have used to respond to mass shootings.
Nearly 6 in 10 American adults said in our latest PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll that the nation's #opioid epidemic is a major problem, but not a national emergency. The CDC estimates that as many as 64,000 Americans fatally overdosed on drugs in 2016.
“Sometimes we don’t know what’s going to happen until the storm actually hits, and this is the worst I’ve ever seen." Lt. General Jeffrey Buchanan spoke to @monicavillamizar immediately after his first flight over Puerto Rico in the daylight.
A US #Army #soldier waits at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Georgia, where flights of supplies, service members and contractors have been launching daily for San Juan, #PuertoRico. The demand for aid has been incredible since #HurricaneMaria hit. Some contractors we met at the base had been waiting for 5+ days for a flight. #storm #hurricane #aid

This former white supremacist skinhead who led a racist heavy metal band believes that there’s “life after hate,” and now runs an organization helping white nationalists – like the ones seen in Charlottesville – to “de-radicalize.” “While there is a lot misinformation and recruitment [of white nationalists] online, it also serves as a wonderful platform for counter-narratives,” that preach love and unity, says former white supremacist Christian Picciolini. #extremism #whitesupremacy #charlottesville #skinhead #racism
International faithfuls gathered at the Vatican’s general audience in St. Peter's Square for a chance to get up close and personal with the pontiff and receive his blessing. Pope Francis used the traditional, weekly papal audience to announce a global campaign in support of the world's immigrants, called "Share the Journey." The campaign encourages followers to "see the real people behind the numbers," according to Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila. #photooftheday #pope #vatican #immigrants #faith
No cell phone service. No gas. No power. No water -- this is Puerto Rico seven days after category 4 storm Hurricane Maria hit the US territory. When the storm hit last Tuesday, it was one of the worst the area had seen in years.

Residents like Karlian Mercado (pictured) have remained in the rubble of their homes. More Puerto Ricans still are in shelters, lining up for groceries and desperately seeking cell phone service. #hurricanemaria #maria #disasterrelief #puertorico

@wbrangham reports: Three generations of women in Ocuilan, Mexico watch as their home is condemned and emptied of its valuables.

Rescuers give the "be silent" signal at the site of a collapsed building in Mexico City. The call for silence allows rescuers on the site to call out for people who might still be stranded inside.

@wbrangham reports: Rescue bucket brigade at work at #earthquake site in Mexico City. They're removing rubble from this collapsed building bucket-by-bucket because they don't want to risk putting heavier machinery on the pile and trigger further collapse. Hundreds of volunteers out here working around the clock, hoping someone will still come out alive. @newshour #mexicocityearthquake
