MLB:

Giancarlo Stanton has won the Home Run Derby last night. Stanton beat defending champion Todd Frazier of the White Sox 20-13 in the final. The Marlins outfielder slammed 61 home runs during his three rounds, beating Robinson Cano 24-7 in the first round and current home run leader Mark Trumbo 17-14 in the semifinals. Frazier advanced to the final by beating both Carlos Gonzalez and Adam Duvall by one round-tripper in each round.

As we drive from the coastal Venezuelan city of Maracaibo toward Colombia, we see dozens of trucks, some of them escorted by Venezuelan National Guard soldiers.

They've come from Colombia — laden with illegal contraband — even though the border is officially closed.

Regular people or smugglers who don't have deals with the military have to brave what my driver calls la carretera sin ley, or the lawless road.

We stop at a crowded strip mall where a group of smugglers is sitting. One of them agrees to talk, but he also doesn't want his name used.

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses guns in the wake of the Dallas shootings, Rudy Giuliani's comments, and the line between policing and warfare.
