'Gunfight' author Ryan Busse was once a rising star in the gun industry. But he became disillusioned after Columbine when, he says, the NRA began to use "fear and conspiracy and hatred" to bolster sales. Busse talks about turning points within the NRA and his career, and the state of the industry today.

Also, Maureen Corrigan reviews 'The Sinner and the Saint,' a new book about experiences in Dostoyevsky's life that led to his classic novel 'Crime and Punishment.'
