Advocates on both sides of the gun control debate will make their cases on the Sunday talk shows this week after a school shooting on Friday in Santa Fe, Texas, killed 10 people and injured about 10 more.

Incoming National Rifle Association president Oliver North will appear on "Fox News Sunday" alongside Mark Kelly, co-founder of gun control group Giffords. 

Kelly, who is married to former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) founded the group alongside his wife after she was shot at a campaign event in 2011.


Two parents of shooting victims are also set to discuss gun violence and possible solutions on ABC's "This Week": Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime was killed in Feb. 14's Parkland, Florida, shooting, and Nicole Hockle, whose son Dylan was killed in 2012 in the Newtown, Conn. shooting.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who suggested that having "too many entrances and too many exits" exacerbates the effects of deadly school shootings, will also appear on ABC and CNN. Patrick's comments followed hours after Friday's shooting at Santa Fe.
