Katie Couric's talk show, Katie, isn't kicking off until Sept. 10, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have a platform to currently talk about The Dark Knight Rises tragedy, James Holmes and gun control. Head to Twitter — things are heating up!

A new promo is out detailing just what inquiring Katie wants to know, promising fans looking forward to her talk show debut hot topics such as "Is sexting cheating?" and "What are the secrets of truly happy people?"

Until Sept. 10, however, there's current news to discuss surrounding James Holmes and The Dark Knight Rises shootings. Posing a probing question to her Twitter fans Saturday, Katie Couric wrote, "A tough but important question 4 parents-how DO u talk to your kids about tragedies like yesterday's #theatershooting?"

Sunday she followed up that discussion with, "Asked by 2 friends yesterday: 'why does anyone need an assault rifle?' Thought I [would] pose the question to you. Do they and why?"

Responding to the replies she had received, Katie Couric late praised, "Thank you for all the responses. Gratifying to hear from you. It's possible to express opinions respectfully on twitter!"
