WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The debate over the nation's gun control laws has been renewed in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
Neither President Obama nor Mitt Romney has made gun control a visible park of their campaign and have shown little indication that they will.
But some politicians, mostly Democrats, are demanding action.
Colorado's governor, a Democrat, said that stricter gun laws wouldn't have stopped suspected gunman, James Holmes.
So far there has been silence on Capitol Hill.
Republicans and some Democrats have little appetite to take up this controversial issue; especially in a heated election year.
