Only weeks after a deadly shooting rampage left 12 people dead and 58 wounded in an movie theatre, a gunman in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, killing six before his life was taken by a responding police officer.
And today, August 14, an officer and a civilian have been left dead and two other officers and another civilian have been wounded in a shooting near Texas A&M University that also left the gunman dead.
The Aurora shooting, an allegedly pre-meditated event during a midnight showing of the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, heightened fears about gun safety only hours after the shooting occured on July 20.
The accused gunman, James Holmes, was found to have mental problems, but had the ability to purchase multiple weapons that he used on his rampage.
While information about today's shooting and the August 5 shooting continue to be released by law enforcement in Texas and , respectively, mass shootings have dominated the country's news over the last few decades - including the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007 that killed 33 people and the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 that left 15 dead, including the two shooters.
So, in light of these shootings, what do you think, Lindy?
Should there be stricter gun control laws? Would such laws help prevent a horrible event like these shootings? Are gun control laws of any kind a threat to the Second Amendment right to bear arms?
