It has been exactly one-month since the massacre in Newtown, CT where 20 children and six adults were gunned down at the Sandy Hook Elementary school. The fate of the school building itself is a delicate subject which was debated at a public forum last night.
The shooting has also sparked a national debate over guns and gun violence, with Vice President Joe Biden vowing to deliver recommendations by Tuesday to President Obama on curbing gun violence. Newtown was part of the district of then Congressman Chris Murphy.
This morning, Murphy, a newly-elected Connecticut Democratic Senator joins “Starting Point” to explain how Newtown residents are coping since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. He also explains why he thinks the National Rifle Association is out of step with American opinion on guns.
