Hillary Clinton Preps for Possible Biden Campaign, Public Opinion on Gun Control

Hillary Clinton asserted this week that her team is not digging up information on Vice President Joe Biden if he were to run, but Anne Gearan of The Washington Post believes Clinton’s team is not sitting idly by waiting for Biden’s decision. Reid Wilson reports new polling that shows U.S. public opinion toward gun control overwhelmingly favors a ban on assault weapons and a national database to track private gun sales. Michael Crowley discusses warnings from the U.S. intelligence that Putin could face possible counterattacks from Islamic militants within Russian territory if the country continues to engage in Syria with airstrikes and ground forces. Also, Joan Biskupic reports on a new death penalty case at the Supreme Court.
