San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee says, in light of the recent shootings in Colorado, that he's committed to getting more guns off the street. The mayor has been talking to other cities which have implemented controversial "stop-and-frisk" policies that allow police to search suspicious-looking people for weapons. Supporters say it's helped reduce violent crime in New York and elsewhere, but opponents say it's racial profiling and an affront to civil liberties. We'll debate the policy and look at what a San Francisco brand of stop-and-frisk may look like.

Guests:

Malia Cohen, member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and author of a resolution opposing stop-and-frisk in San Francisco

Ailsa Chang, reporter for WNYC News in New York who has reported extensively on New York's stop-and-frisk policy

Dennis Smith, associate professor of public policy at New York University
