Gun Control in the Wake of Tucson, Gardena High Shootings

Hosted by

As several schools in the San Fernando Valley are locked down while police look for a man who shot a school policeman, columnist Steve Lopez debates the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America.  Also, while cities work overtime to protect redevelopment money, Governor Brown tells them he needs it to help solve the state's massive financial problems. Plus, Sheriff Lee Baca responds to an LA Times editorial accusing him of performing official favors for wealthy contributors in Beverly Hills. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the New York Times reports that the US and Israel tested equipment just like that in Iran's nuclear program, which was partly disabled by the Stuxnet computer virus.  Is Stuxnet the future of cyberwarfare?  What are the risks of blowback and the immediate consequences for renewed talks with Iran?
