This week on Dialogue reporter Steve Kotchko talks with Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence, in the wake of the Las Vegas mass shooting incident.  Pinciaro discusses the prospects for gun control legislation in Congress to respond to the wave of mass shootings, and he also warns of possible Congressional consideration of bills to loosen gun regulations.  Pinciaro discusses why the National Rifle Association continues to have great influence in Washington, despite national polls showing Americans favor passage of universal background checks on all gun sales in the U.S.
