The right to keep and bear arms; in the wake of America’s worst mass shooting, the issue of gun control is on everyone’s minds.

At least 50 innocent lives lost when a gunman using a legally purchased assault rifle and pistol opened fire in a gay Orlando nightclub.

So, is this the political issue that will determine the US Presidency? And with 300 million guns in circulation in America, is there any way to stop such tragedies?

Eric Ruben from the Brennan Center for Justice, whose work focuses on the Second Amendment and the right of Americans to keep and bear arms, joined Paul Henry this morning.
