Hangout with Anderson Cooper at 12 p.m. ET

At noon today you can find Anderson Cooper, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Jeffrey Toobin and AC360 producer Jack Gray in a live Google+ Hangout on CNN.com and AC360.com.

With your help, they're continuing the conversation they started last night with many others in the "Guns under fire" town hall. What questions did the program raise for you personally about gun violence in America? Leave a comment here or on the AC360 Google+ page.

The show included guests with a wide range of perspectives on gun laws and related issues like care for children with mental health issues and the culture of violence.

An NRA board member shared the stage with the president of the Brady Campaign; a man whose father was gunned down in the Sikh temple shooting told his story, and so did a young mom who protected herself and her baby's life with a shotgun when intruders broke into her home.

Although some panelists fundamentally disagreed with each other, the dialogue was honest and sincere. Their differing opinions were a fresh reminder of the deep and diverse beliefs about gun laws in this country.

Did any of your views change after hearing the exchange of ideas? Did you become more firm in your stance on how the country handles gun crimes and background checks? Share your reaction or questions and you may see them discussed in the Hangout at 12 p.m.

Watch highlights from the "Guns under fire" town hall.
