Part 1

We begin with the president’s unveiling today of an expansive gun-control initiative involving 23 separate executive actions in an attempt to get around a Congress in the pocket of the NRA. A former special agent with the ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, William Vizzard, professor emeritus and Chair of the Division of Criminal Justice at California State University, Sacramento joins us to discuss whether the president’s end-run around the NRA will reduce the epidemic of gun violence in America. william vizzard

Part 2

Then we speak with the author of a new book on Lance Armstrong, “The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France; Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Cost”. New York Times best-selling author Daniel Coyle joins us to discuss the fate of the popular athlete whose fall from grace into a swamp of costly litigation is just beginning as we wait to learn about the extent of his contrition in an interview with Oprah Winfrey to be broadcast Thursday and Friday.

Part 3

Then finally Richard Wolff joins us. He is professor emeritus of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and author of “Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism”. We discuss the on-going battle between the power of money that has captured our money-driven politics and the power of people who may or may not, rise up to assert their ownership of their government and their economy.
