Eduardo Sencion was mentally ill when he walked into a Carson City IHOP with an illegally modified AK-47-style gun and opened fire.  Now his actions might change our gun laws.  Nevada legislators and some law enforcement officials are calling for a review of the state's gun laws.  But others say changes would infringe our Second Amendment right to bear arms by limiting access to weapons.  We talk to a local lawmaker who's considering changes, and the head of the state's firearms coalition, about both sides of the issue.  What do you think?  Should civilians be able to have assault weapons?  Share your comments.

GUESTS
William Horne, Nevada State Assemblyman, Majority Whip, Dist 34
Don Turner, Pres, Nevada Firearms Coalition
