‘Left, Right & Center’: Gun Control and Immigration

Posted on Apr 12, 2013

Was Winston Churchill talking about gun control when he said, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” The Senate steps in to the end of the beginning of the gun debate. Is this an incredibly shrinking discussion? Is President Obama being sufficiently aggressive? What happened to the much-touted assault weapons ban, high-capacity magazine prohibition and a gun registry? “Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right”—is there a new center on gun control, immigration and gay marriage? We explore it all.

Dan Schnur, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at USC, moderates from the center. On the left is Scheer, and Byron York, chief political correspondent of The Washington Examiner, brings the conservative view.
