Last night, a gunman on an upper floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada killed more than 50 people and wounded at least 400 others attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival – an outdoor country music festival.

In today’s Congressional Corner, Alan Chartock speaks with Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty from Connecticut’s 5th District about responsible gun control.
