"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: Is effective gun control really possible? Many argue Australia managed it after a gun massacre in 1996. Fareed speaks with former Prime Minister John Howard about Australia’s experience, how the country has managed to sharply reduce gun violence, and what the U.S. could learn.
“Now, I know the history of gun ownership in the United States. I respect it,” Howard says. “America has a Bill of Rights, Australia does not. The courts in Australia do not have the same capacity to decide these issues as they do in the United States.”
“So I acknowledge all of the differences. And clearly it is a debate that has to go on in the United States without people from the outside giving any lectures. And I'm not doing that. I'm simply explaining what we did, what our feelings and emotions were. And there was enormous public support, especially in urban areas, for what we did 17 years ago.”
Plus, how can we create jobs in America? Fareed sits down for a 1-on-1 interview with former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers.
And in What in the World, some fresh thinking on how to deal with a nuclear North Korea.
