NBC News: Hopefully CT School Shooting Will Result In ‘Political Capital’ To Reform Gun Laws


Hours after what appears to have been a massacre at a local elementary school in Connecticut, and with the number of victims or their identities yet known, MSNBC host Alex Wagner opined that this shooting must yield policy makers in Washington some “political capital” to introduce reform American gun ownership laws.

Wagner noted that it is likely that this shooting will be one of, if not the single, most deadly school shooting in American history.

“It is, hopefully – we say this every, single time we cover one of these things – a line in the sand,” Wagner said. “There has got to be some kind of measurable change, some kind of reaction.”
