Statistically shootings and theater shootings are a small percentage of murders. Most are done by people you know.

Generally speaking, a murder victim knows the man that shot him about 90 percent of the time.

As unfortunate as this circumstance was, it does not justify the attention or the measures that Obama , Biden and others want to make. I don't have a problem with police checks or even limiting magazines to 10 rounds. But that is about it. Banning 'assault style' rifles just because someone does not like the way they look is not going to change anything.

The murders at Sandy Hook, Columbine and the theater in Colorado were done by mentally unstable people. That is where the focus should be.
