The arrests come just weeks after the gang-rape and murder of another woman on a bus in New Delhi sparked nationwide protests.

The five suspects charged in last's month's gang rape appeared in a court hearing today. The lawyer for one of the five men charged in the brutal rape and murder of the woman says his client is a minor - calling for an age-determination test.

2016 Prospects Take On Gun Control: Md. Gov. backs tough gun laws

Fingerprinting gun owners? It's one of the sweeping proposals to crack down on gun violence by Maryland's Governor Martin O'Malley.

His plans for Gun Control also include:

  • Banning assault weapons and high-capacity gun magazines
  • Requiring gun-safety courses and background checks

These proposals go further than his fellow Democratic governors have been willing to go. Maryland House Minority Leader Anthony O'Donnell - a Republican - tells The Washington Post:

"The reality is Martin O'Malley is trying to get to the left of Cuomo in New York because he wants to run for president in 2016," O'Donnell said.

OutFront Tonight: Erick Erickson, editor of the conservative blog Redstate.com, former Pentagon official Rosa Brooks, a columnist for Foreign Policy magazine and CNN Legal Analyst Paul Callan.

Obama reinforces line on debt ceiling, GOP say government shutdown possible

President Barack Obama said again Monday, he won't negotiate with Republicans in order to raise the debt ceiling.

"If the Republicans in Congress have made a decision that they want to shut down the government in order to get their way, then they have the votes, at least in the House of Representatives, probably to do that," Obama said.

Avlon: Call it the default ceiling

The problem is - Republicans say they are in fact probably going to do that.

OutFront tonight: David Frum – former Special assistant and speechwriter to President George W. Bush and Daniel Altman – Adjunct associate professor of economics at New York University's Stern School of Business.
