After an update on the day's news, Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News returns to the Nicole Sandler Show to talk about America's mass shooting problem and the anniversary of election day 2016.
Nicole Sandler continues her look back at 2015, covering a lot of ground today: Cliff Schecter joins in to talk guns, mass shootings and the Tamir Rice travesty; Amy Simon brings the state of women in 2015; Julianna Forlano helps shine a light on the absurd news of the year (and there's plenty of that!)
