Gun control, blame for Giffords shooting, public option healthcare
The shooting massacre in Tucson has spurred calls to re-examine gun control laws in the U.S. Thom talks with Wayne Allyn Root and Josh Horwitz about whether or not tougher laws are really needed. Then, could the Tea Party and its heated rhetoric be to blame for the incident in Tucson and other recent threats against members of Congress? Thom discusses this with George Landrith and Seton Motley. Also, Thom discusses with Igor Volsky and Jamie Weinstein about whether or not the alleged gunman Jared Loughner would have committed the act if he had had access to mental healthcare services and how some states are preparing for a potential repeal of Obamacare. Finally, Thom gives a Daily Take about why the right may not be the victims of government that they claim to be.
