Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Dan Gross, President of The Brady Campaign, join Ed afterwards to react to the White House’s comment that today is not the day to talk about gun control.

Afterwards, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) talks about the latest in a sad string of school shootings.

Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown university and author of “Can You Hear Me Now?,” talks about how we deal with this kind of appalling violence as a society.
