Warning signs: profiling a murderer

Forensic psychologist Kris Mohandie with insight on what causes a person to launch a mass attack: "typically there is a lot of anger with a person like this, and on top of it, an obsession with power obtained through violence. The idea that one can have omnipotent power and control as their antidote for the powerlessness that they may have experienced in their life in a number of different ways."

Co Gov Hickenlooper on the "culture of violence"

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on the "culture of violence" and gun safety: "certainly the culture of violence - and look at the level of violence in our media, video games, the depiction of these assault weapons again and again, there might well be some direct connection between people who have mental instability, and when they go over the edge they transpose themselves, they become part of one of those video games, and perhaps that's why all these assault weapons are used."

Gov. Malloy: "sad truth is, there are no answers"

Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy spoke to Candy Crowley about the latest on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings: "Connecticut has a pretty aggressive law, probably of the 50 states I think we're ranked fourth most aggressive in trying to limit access to these kinds of weapons. But what happens in the absence of a Brady Bill, in the absence of federal legislation, people use descriptive terms to try to get around the limitations that are built into our statutes here in Connecticut or might otherwise not happen if we had federal legislation on this issue.

These are assault weapons. You don't hunt deer with these things. And I think that's the question that a lot of people are going to have to resolve their own minds. Where should this line get drawn?"
