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.
