The shooting in Orlando raises, once again, the question of gun control.

The tragic massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, is the largest mass shooting in U.S. history. In addition, this attack on the LGBT community is unprecedented.

For a closer look at the impact of this shooting, and how it could alter the conversation around gun control in the 2016 election, Adam Winkler spoke with Take Two's A Martinez. He's a professor at UCLA's school of law and the author of "Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America".
