Today On The Signorile Show

3:35pm ET - The Crow Creek Indian Reservation lies along the Missouri River in central South Dakota, and while South Dakotan's across the state have been voting for weeks the Crow Creek Sioux have yet to see their ballots. The state offers 46 days of early absentee voting and despite the fact that the tribe accounts for 85% of the county’s population the closest early voting site is a 50 mile round trip away in Gann Valley, a town with the whopping population of 14 people.  Joining us today to discuss the vote suppression of Native Americans in Buffalo County, South Dakota is Kira Lerner, a Political Reporter for ThinkProgress.  You can also follow Kira on twitter.

4:35pm ET - The Newtown tragedy was supposed to change everything about gun politics and usher in a new era of bi-partisan gun reform which would halt the growing epidemic of violence in our county, but with opposition from the NRA and their Republican Party allies all real reforming legislation at the federal level has stalled.  Yet, despite the inaction in the halls of congress a lot has happened at the state level and according to George Zornick, the Washington DC editor for The Nation, the reformers might still win.  He joins us today to discuss the current state of gun reform laws in the United States. you can also follow George on twitter.
