Talkers.com says it's this week's #1 topic. An article by Kevin Casey runs down various hosts and their feelings about the issue and the national discussion. Alan Colmes says the Newtown, Connecticut shootings "altered the national zeitgeist" and he's using his show to let listeners "vent." (Photo: Alan Colmes, Screenshot www.alan.com)

Sean Hannity worries about the Constitution not being protected by government checks and balances and suggests protecting school children with retired armed police officers. Syndicated host, Doug Stephan, feels "making it just about gun laws narrows the reality," according to talkers.com

Host Lars Larson, who carries a gun, strongly advocates for the 2nd Amendment and says he's been using his forum to correct innacuracies in the media.

Thom Hartman, a hunter, wants a balance between sports shooters and the protection of society.
