Adam and Tim debate gun control in the wake of the massacre in Newtown. Tim points out that rifles are not the problem when to comes to gun violence. Adam inveighs against the (poorly named) “gun-show loophole.” Should proponents of gun control try to change hearts and minds instead of pushing new legislation? Tim argues that quickly passing legislation after a traumatic event is never a good thing. Finally, Adam explains why he detests the NRA.
