New York Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney discusses the future of gun reform in the U.S. following the Parkland school shooting. We talk about the students who marched on the Florida State Capitol and how they're changing the conversation around guns. Maloney says she is proud of the next generation.

She also tells us about her new bill that would make it harder for those with mental health disabilities to get firearms. Maloney says assault weapons are weapons of war, calling for them to be banned completely.

Congresswoman Maloney also digs into the National Rifle Association's powerful influence over politicians. She believes members of the NRA will be shamed after what happened in Florida.
