It’s already legal for teachers to arm themselves at school in some states and the numbers could start growing.

And, as we found out on “The Ed Show” last night, teachers in Utah’s Alpine School District can have a gun in a classroom without even telling parents!

Tonight at 8pET on msnbc, Ed Schultz gets the parents’ perspective on guns in the classroom from Bill McGee, a parent of 4 children enrolled in the Alpine School District. Then he’ll talk with Rhonda Bromley, a spokesperson for the Alpine School District.

Then, the National Rifle Association refuses any discussion on gun laws. Tonight, Sandy Phillips and Lonnie Phillips, relatives of Aurora, Colorado, shooting victim Jessica Ghawi, stand up for reform.

Karl Rove and Tim Pawlenty want Republicans to stop playing chicken with the economy by trying to use the debt ceiling as leverage. We’ll have the details.

Americans living in poverty is at an all-time high. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is here with the outrage on inequality.

Head injuries plagued Junior Seau’s celebrated football career, but will the NFL finally act to protect their players?

And in the BIG Finish, the Oscar nominations were announced today. But how heavy will politics weigh with the academy? Ed will ask David Edelstein, Chief Film Critic, New York magazine.

It’s going to be another essential @edshow tonight at 8p/11pET on @msnbctv.

Join the conversation now or during the show by commenting on Facebook and/or tweeting (with the #edshow hashtag) so we can share your thoughts on the show.
