Can the U.S. find common ground in the gun control debate?

    The Tuscon shootings that left many dead and has Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords dealing with a long recovery reignited the national debate on gun control.

    Pres. Barack Obama has called for an improved background-check system, and recently invited advocates of gun control and gun rights to meet, but the National Rifle Association declined the invitation.

    Talking about gun control today are Newsweek’s Andrew Romano, who wrote “2,403 Shot Dead Since Tucson,” and Gallup Poll Editor in Chief Frank Newport. They’ll talk with Radio Times host Marty Moss-Coane about gun control in the U.S.
