Gun Control Policy

President Obama acted quickly after the Connecticut school shootings in December, drawing up plans for tighter gun control. His point man, Vice President Joe Biden, says public revulsion after the shooting compels government action. Does it? Will the executive orders Obama signed and the restrictions he proposes make Americans safer? Legislative hearings begin next week. Our discussion begins tomorrow morning at 9 with host Mike McIntyre on the Sound of Ideas.

Jim Irvine, Chairman , Buckeye Firearms Association
Lori O’Neill, Consultant who advises non-profits, community groups and public officials on the issue of gun violence and how to reduce it
Dave Cohen, Professor, Fellow Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics, University of Akron
