The issue of gun control continues to dominate the political landscape, but like any sensitive issue, the most extreme voices tend to get the most attention.
Before the tragic shooting in Newtown, Dan Baum, a self-professed "gun guy," took an 18-month trip across the country. He bypassed the NRA and extreme anti-gun activists to speak directly with gun owners.
The results are in his new book "Gun Guys: A Road Trip." He joins Soledad on "Starting Point" this morning to talk about what he learned on his trip and some of the biggest misconceptions people have about gun owners.
