(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The promise from Senator Mitch McConnell to deal with gun legislation after the August recess response from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on action on gun control quoted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Jeffrey Toobin & Rick Santorum about gun laws. [SANTORUM - offers views on the issue of how to deal with the violence of mass shootings as opposed to what Pelosi wants passed, but we can cautiously talk about gun control issues, on the problem of defining what is an assault weapon.] [TOOBIN - offers views on how McConnell will not pass gun legislation, the problem with judicial power in the Supreme Court making gun laws hard.]

Cooper, Anderson
