U.S. Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) speaks to members of the media during a news briefing after the weekly Democratic policy luncheon December 13, 2011 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.
President Obama has made gun control a priority, and he'll expect Majority leader Harry Reid to champion legislation in the Senate. But there's just one problem, Reid has portrayed himself in the past as a supporter of gun rights.
Many elected officials are adept at walking a fine line, but this may be the kind of tightrope exercise that could trip up even the most experienced politician.
Jon Ralston, host of Ralston Reports, a TV show and blog focused on Nevada politics, joins the show to discuss Reid's relationship with gun control.
