Gun Control Debate Buzzing After Colorado Shooting
The gun control debate is buzzing nationwide in the wake of a deadly shooting at a Colorado movie theater last week. James Holmes, 24, is accused of opening fire during a showing of the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises," Friday. By the time the shooting stopped 12 people were dead and 58 more were wounded. Police say Holmes legally purchased the firearms, which included a military style rifle, a shotgun and a .40-caliber pistol. President Obama says steps can be taken under existing laws to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them. House Speaker John Boehner says he agrees.
