New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell joined The Chris McCarthy Show on Friday to talk about the school shooting in Florida and the measures the city takes to prevent something from happening.

Other topics include the recreational marijuana industry and how New Bedford can be prepared for it, and how changes in the commercial fishing industry can help it remain one of the city's key industries, despite the regulations and challenges fishermen are facing.

Later in the interview, Mayor Mitchell also gives a candid take on New Bedford's economic future overall.
