The Future of Gun Control

“Senator, we've been talking about gun control and gun owners for eons of time and nothing much ever happens. But when you buy an automobile and put the car on the road you have to prove that you have insurance on that automobile. What about a federal statute applying the insurance idea to gun ownership? That if you buy a gun – a shotgun, a handgun, no matter what kind of gun you’re buying – you have to insure it in a fairly substantial insurance cost. Do you think that might deter at least the idea of purchasing guns?” asks Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) during a conversation about gun control in America, following the church massacre in Sutherland, Texas, where gunman Devin Kelley shot and killed more than two dozen people. Hear what Durbin has to say on the issue.
