Does the Texas college shooting add more fuel to new gun policy?

Today's school shooting in Texas is the fourth school shooting since the massacre in Newtown last month, and it comes amid a bitter debate over gun control in this country.

During his inaugural address on Monday, President Obama appeared to tie this debate to our nation's founding principles.

"We have always understood that when times change, so must we. That fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges, that preserving our individual freedoms requires collective action, " Obama said.

Does this latest school shooting add more fuel to new gun policy?

Phil Mickelson's tax problem, apologizes for comments

Phil Mickelson, the professional golfer apologized Tuesday for publicly saying he was going to make "drastic changes" in his life due to new U.S. and California tax laws.

On Sunday, the 42 year-old champion golfer - who Forbes estimates is the seventh-highest paid athlete in 2012 with earnings of $47.8 million - said he is reevaluating his situation.

"If you add up all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the social security and the state, my tax rate is 62-63%," Mickelson said.

When asked if he would leave the U.S., the longtime California resident said he was not sure, but faced with losing two-thirds of his income to taxes, can you blame him?
