Theater shooting flares up gun law debate

The debate on gun control has become a front burner issue, but Democratic and Republican strategists agree Congress will not take up this issue after the mass shooting in Aurora.

Former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff echoes Governor Hickenlooper saying it isn't the weapon, it's the person who usually has a sudden change of behavior.

Still others are calling for a ban or stricter regulations on gun possession and use.
