Tonight’s PBS NEWSHOUR (Tuesday, January 15) will feature two important Newsmaker interviews: Senior Correspondent Judy Woodruff will talk with National Rifle Association President David Keene about gun control, and Correspondent Spencer Michaels will interview California Governor Jerry Brown about California’s fiscal situation.
Keene has been speaking out against a projected tightening of gun control laws in the wake of the recent Newtown, Conn. school shooting, and is appearing on the NewsHour in advance of Wednesday’s scheduled announcement of President Obama’s gun control recommendations.
Woodruff and Keene will discuss proposals for gun control at the national and state level, the recent scrutiny of firearms, the NRA’s call for armed guards in every school and other related issues.
In California, Brown turned a $27 billion deficit into a balanced budget.
In a taped interview with Michaels, Brown will talk about how he did it, and whether the lessons learned can apply to the nation as a whole.
Both Newsmaker interviews will air Tuesday, January 15, on the PBS NewsHour (check local listings).
