NPR had a report this morning on how last week's shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs has ignited a debate about guns in the city. The Mayor, former Attorney General John Suthers, is not one of those ready to blame guns however, saying more information is needed. Suthers was Attorney General at the time Governor John Hickenlooper pushed through gun control after the Sandy Hook school shooting. At that time, Suthers said he did not believe the new gun control laws would prevent criminal acts.
According to the report, some in Colorado Springs are already blaming guns rather than the individual who committed the crime, claiming guns are just too easy to get.
