Panelists talked about possible gun control measures and gun violence. Mayor Rahm Emanuel said gun control measures needed to include comprehensive background checks and the limit of high capacity magazines. Former Ohio Representative Steven LaTourette said the Republican Party might accept President Obama’s proposals if “common sense” measures that did not place a limitation on the capacity of the ammunition clips were submitted. All the speakers were in favor of closing the loophole that allows any one to buy arms at gun shows and preventing mentally ill people from getting guns. close
