If you think it's too soon after yet another national calamity to have a discussion about the easy availability of guns and their remarkable efficiency as killing machines -- and for some people, it's ALWAYS too soon -- then this will probably not be the radio program you should choose today.
We will have that discussion from every angle. And while we will get into a discussion of mental illness and some of the other issues that may be at play here, let's not kid ourselves. When someone wants to kill large numbers of innocents, there is one tool they employ above all others. THAT is the issue.
We will also conduct an "exit interview" today with Congressman John Shimkus, whose district will no longer include Springfield. He joins us live by phone after 7am.
