Guests: Natalie Kitroeff, a business reporter for The New York Times, spoke with David Wheeler, whose 6-year-old son, Ben, died in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School; and Sheryl Gay Stolberg, who covers Congress for The New York Times.

makes no sense to blame firearm manufacturer. thts like blaming the spoon for making you fat. dnt get me wrong mass shootings are tragic but its not the gun or manufacturers fault.
