This Sunday: In the wake of the tragedy at Washington DC's Navy Yard, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre joins us exclusively with his first comments since the shooting. SAndy Phillips, mother of Aurora, CO shooting victim Jessica Ghawi, also joins us to make the case for tougher gun laws in the United States.
