The tragedy in Aurora, Colorado has once again raised questions about the tension between gun rights and gun laws, and our attitudes about the significance of guns in our society. We talk to John Treadwell, an assistant attorney general in the criminal division in Vermont, Michele Martinez-Campbell, an associate professor at Vermont Law School, and Bob Brenneman, an assistant professor of sociology at St. Michael's College, about our views of how guns are regulated and the place they occupy in both Vermont and American culture.
Also on the program, a formula created by a professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth predicts how many medals each country will win at the Olympics. We talk to Tuck graduate Emily Williams about what economics have to do with how a country will fair at the Olympics, and her predictions for London 2012.
