Live Call-In Show with Sheriff John D'Agostini has Over 50 Participants
Rob Charny and Sheriff D’Agostini discussed their views on this heartbreaking tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Sheriff D’Agostini discussed the shooting and answered Rob's and participants' questions. Advocates on both sides of the gun-control debate commented. The discussion included teachers with guns and the cost of full-time sheriff deputies at local schools.
Sheriff D’Agostini also talked about the recent decision in the Moore v. Madigan case in which the the Chicago-based 7th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois’s ban on carrying ready-to-use firearms. In that case Judge Richard Posner's decision makes it very clear that the right to self-defense entails more than just allowing people to keep guns in the home.
The Sheriff talked about the department's Gun emergency response plans and how the SO provides after action counseling.
The discussion included advice on how CCW holders should react if confronted by law enforcement.

The format is ideal for public officials to interact with large numbers of citizens during times of crises or general public concern. We look forward to more of these interactive streaming interviews by Rob Charney as they exemplify how new media serves the public interest.
