After the shooting massacre in Newtown, Connecticut that left 28 dead, including gunman Adam Lanza, several national gun retailers are taking what may be temporary steps to limit gun sales.
Dick's Sporting Goods has removed all guns from its store in Danbury, Connecticut and stopped selling modern sporting rifles at stores nationwide. Wal-mart took down its webpage showing the Bushmaster .223 semi-automatic rifle, the primary gun used by Lanza.
However, concerns about stricter gun laws down the road have sent gun sales soaring.
More than 6 million guns were made in America last year. Gun sales have been climbing in the past five years, and believe it or not, the Newtown tragedy has only accelerated that trend.
CNN David Mattingly reports.
As the people of Newtown, Connecticut say goodbye to their loved ones killed in Friday's shooting spree, law enforcement officials continue to investigate the perpetrator behind the massacre.
Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza first killed his mother, and then 26 others, and then finally ended his own life.
The Connecticut Chief Medical Examiner H. Wayne Carver told reporters Tuesday toxicology tests are under way to determine whether Lanza had medication in his system.
Carver says he was told Lanza had been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, but says he doesn't know whether he was correctly diagnosed. Still, he points out that such a diagnosis would have nothing to do with Lanza's violent behavior.
Mehmet Cengiz Oz, the host of Dr. Oz, a daytime medical show, visited Newtown on Friday night and has been weighing in on how families should deal with behavioral health and mental illness.
Dr. Oz joins Erin Burnett to discuss Adam Lanza as well as ways to deal with children who have mental illness.
