Sen. McCain calls Colorado shooting a "terrible tragedy"

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) calls Colorado theater massacre shooting a "terrible tragedy" and talks about the process of healing as a community that they learned in Arizona in the aftermath of the shooting in Tucson.
"I hope also that the folks in Colorado could look at what we did in Tucson. It was great healing. ... It was really - our community and our state united. And I hope that the people of Aurora, and the state of Colorado, will also begin on that. It is tough, but I think that we have emerged in Arizona where there has been significant improvement. And so I hope that everybody knows how tough it is as well.”
