Michael Tomasky, a special correspondent for Newsweek and the Daily Beast, joins Current TV’s John Fugelsang to discuss the ongoing gun control fight. Connecticut passed the most restrictive and comprehensive gun control legislation in the country on Thursday, prompting Fugelsang to ask whether a state-by-state approach is the best hope for stricter gun measures.

Tomasky says that unfortunately, such an approach won’t be effective, because “many, many guns that are used in crimes in New York, in Boston, in northeastern cities come from Virginia and Florida,” for example, and those states are opposed to gun control. “I’ve never in my life seen 90 percent of Americans support something that is just not going to happen,” Tomasky adds.
