A recent mass-shooting in California will do little to help the cause of American's calling for greater gun control, Dr Nick Sharman told Sky News.

Dr Sharman is a media and communications lecturer from the Faculty of Arts, with expertise on the media representations of American politics and protest.  

He said he would love to think that the latest shootings will lead to further gun control measures, but he is not confident, given the power of the NRA as the "third party in American politics".
