The recent landmark Supreme Court decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago guarantees that law-abiding American citizens have a fundamental, federal right to own handguns in their homes for self-defense, but the long-term implications are yet to be fully understood. NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and Paul Helmke of The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence join Gwen Ifill of The PBS NewsHour to discuss the decision, future lawsuits, the labyrinthine DC gun restrictions since the federal ban was lifted, criminal justice and anti-gun Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan. Originally aired June 28, 2010.
