President Obama calls for change in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

What does change look like and how do we get there?

Tonight, Ed asks Michael Eric Dyson, msnbc Political Analyst and Professor at Georgetown University.

Then, Ed will present the facts about the National Rifle Association’s power with New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s right hand man on gun control, Mark Glaze.

Will rural America come around on common sense gun laws? Ed will ask John Nichols about the differing views in urban and rural areas and the role of the NRA in shaping the conversation about gun laws.

And in the wake of the Newtown school shooting, Republicans are hitting the same old NRA talking points, hiding behind the Second Amendment. msnbc’s Alex Wagner and Jonathan Alter will respond.

And Dr. Gail Saltz discusses the role mental health professionals need to play to reduce the violence.

It’s going to another blockbuster @edshow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
