President Obama calls for a transformation of America's gun laws saying, "I'm not accepting these shootings as inevitable, but asking what could we do to prevent them from happening again and again and again."
Meanwhile, Wayne Lapierre appears on "Meet the Press" with a controversial take of what went wrong that day saying, "The problem is there weren't enough good guys with guns. When the good guys with guns got there, it stopped."
There have been four other major mass shootings during Obama's presidency in Fort Hood, Texas, Tuscon, Arizona, Aurora, Colorado, and in Newtown, Connecticut, last December.
So restrict the amount of guns in this country or arm more people?
What's clear is this debate will continue with both sides still unwilling to yield.
