ABC News Productions
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In the aftermath of the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, the gun debate has divided the country yet again. This ABC News Nightline special edition looks at both sides of the argument. From violent street shootings in Philadelphia and Chicago, to rural Utah where the Butler family carries on a cherished family tradition of game hunting with high-power rifles, to a Dallas shooting range that has a packed Ladies Night. Can Americans find common ground in this debate? Can we live by the gun without dying by the gun?
