On this week’s show the Ivory Tower panelists examine the tepid, even non-existent, response from public officials to the mass shooting in Aurora. Why is it that public officials, and much of the public, no longer argue for limits on gun ownership and instead seem to have embraced the gun culture? What has changed in the last decade? Then the panelists turn to the NCAA sanctions laid heavily on Penn State to debate whether Mark Emmert of the NCAA was successful in his first step at reigning in the all-powerful football and basketball programs at large academic institutions.
