Officials are still trying to piece together what prompted an Army veteran to go on a killing spree at a Sikh temple, leaving 7 dead, including the gunman and 4 injured.
Authorities say that 40-year-old, Wade Michael Page acquired the gun used in the shooting legally. Like the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting that left 12 dead and 58 wounded, within hours of the Sikh temple shooting there were calls for gun control.
The U.S. Conference of Mayors released a statement Monday calling for common sense gun law regulation.
“Just 17 days have passed since the tragic shooting in Aurora. The U.S. Conference of Mayors repeats its call for reasonable changes in our gun laws and regulations that could help to prevent senseless tragedies such as the one that has shocked Oak Creek and the nation.”
