Today on Stateside, we look at a young woman’s death that casts light on a patchwork system of laws covering guns and restraining orders. We also discuss the lingering impact of surveillance on Muslims in Michigan. Plus, we speak with an artist who is collecting oral histories of Arab American life after 9-11 with the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn.
