Conservative columnist George Will said Sunday that the Aurora, Colo. shootings have little to do with the nation's gun laws, describing it as the product of an isolated, deranged individual.
"That's what the problem is -- an individual's twisted mind," he said on ABC's "This Week" roundable. "There is a human itch in the modern age to commit sociology as soon as this happens and to piggy-back various political agendas on a tragedy. And I just think we ought to resist that. ... There are dereanged people in the world."
Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin, also appearing on the roundtable, similarly argued that the tragedy didn't have much to do with gun laws. She said the more relevant issue is mental health.
