Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, as well as the super PACs supporting the two 2012 presidential hopefuls, are pulling negative political advertisements in the state of Colorado following Friday morning’s mass shooting.
Colorado was devastated by a shooting early Friday morning at Century 16 in Aurora, where 12 were killed and dozens more injured at the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises.
In wake of the tragedy, politicians are reacting with condolences for the affected families of victims.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was among the first to openly react with calls for examination of the gun industry and laws in America, saying that “soothing words are nice,” but it is time for action against gun violence. Bloomberg, a gun control advocate, called upon Obama and Romney for plans of action on the topic which may become a new focus point this election.
