Cultural historian and scholar Richard Slotkin has spent his adult life studying the violence that has swirled through American history and taken root deep in our culture. As we mark the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, Bill Moyers speaks with Slotkin about the role of guns and violence in our society.
Afterwards, Bill talks about the role of the NRA in the firearms debate and looks at a new public service announcement by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a gun control organization.
