Newtown Shooting Could Lead To Tougher Gun Laws

Harry Reid said in the coming weeks, Congress will engage in "meaningful conversations" about gun regulations. Pro-gun Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia also said he thinks it time for dialogue to change about guns. But can a bill to toughen gun laws pass? Las Vegas Sun politics reporter, Karoun Demirjian joins us to talk about what potential legislation could look like and the likelihood of it passing.
