Will the Newtown Massacre Be a Game Changer?

Hosted by

As the funerals of 20 murdered first-graders are under way, calls are increasing for President Obama's "leadership" on gun control. After past multiple killings, he's called for a "conversation" but, despite shrill claims from pro-the gun lobby, never for concrete action. An unspeakable tragedy is the moment gun-control advocates have been waiting for, while others warn against "politicizing" a tragedy. We look at the options.
