New plan to stop flow of guns to Mexican drug cartels criticized

The Obama Administration is moving forward with a new plan to stop the flow of guns to Mexican drug cartels.

Under the new policy, four border states - California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas - will be required to report the sales of high-powered rifles. The National Rifle Association says it plans to sue, calling the plan illegal.

This morning on American Morning, Kiran Chetry speaks with Dennis Henigan, acting president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Chris W. Cox, chief lobbyist of the National Rifle Association of America. She asks them about the pros and cons of this new plan.
