Lanza at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. that left 27 dead, including 20 school children and his school teacher mother, has renewed the debate over gun control laws. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an advocate of stricter gun laws, will appear on NBC’s Meet the Press to make the case. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) will appear on Face the Nation to debate gun control.
