Very good, detailed and engrossing interviews by Anderson with some of the people who were in the theater when the shootings took place. I understand AC's interest in keeping the focus on the victims and their families, but we can't put blinders on when it comes to the root of the problem, without it, there would BE no victims to begin with.

I thought Anderson's coverage was outstanding. There is no one like him. I watched other coverage and he really is the best.

Of course there are always going to be victims because the root of the problem lies in the lax atmosphere that surrounds gun control.
Until President Obama addresses this issue head on, and stops giving his condolences, and says things like, "our prayers go out to the victims and their families," this will happen again and again.
This country needs leadership and so far we have none.
And as far as Anderson is concerned, focusing only on the victims and not discussing the problem, is ignoring the obvious.
You need not elevate the shooter, to discuss the problem and gather open minded people with broad ideas and solutions.
But then there would be panels and pundits and the ratings would take a nose dive, so let us dwell on those that are left alive to rehash
the tragedy repeatedly, just in case we missed the airing the first time.
