Legislation on gun control continues to edge its way forward in the Senate. One large gun rights group — the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms — has come forward in support of the bill, but the proposal is still strongly opposed by the NRA

Joining us is Mitch McKinlay, promoter for Rocky Mountain Gun Shows, which hosts events in California, Utah, and Nevada.
