Gun Control: Assessing Constitutionality and Effectiveness - MP3
Running Time: 00:59:38
President Obama has proposed, and Congress is currently debating, various gun control measures in reaction to the tragic events in Newtown. Is the President's emphasis on gun control misplaced or is gun control the most appropriate response to this situation? Would the measures being debated be effective? Are there any constitutional impediments to those proposals? In this previously recorded conference call, our speakers debate these and other issues related to the aftermath of Newtown.
