Tuesday's debate: Can the U.S. stop gun violence?

JOIN THE LIVE BLOG

In the wake of the tragic Washington Navy Yard shooting Monday, questions are emerging about how a government contractor with a pattern of misconduct and an arrest record was able to obtain security clearance and a gun. Should the laws that allowed Aaron Alexis to purchase a gun be changed?

Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America and Colin Goddard, a Virginia Tech shooting survivor and Senior Policy Advocate for Mayors Against Illegal Guns, join hosts Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter tonight at 6:30pm ET to debate guns in the aftermath of the Navy Yard shooting.

We want you to weigh in: Can the government do anything to prevent mass shootings? Vote below or tweet your response using #CrossfireReturns. You can also vote by commenting on our Facebook post.

You can view the real-time results below or on our Poptip results page.
