LITTLETON, Colorado — Relatives of those killed in at Colorado movie theater shooting this summer are reacting with outrage to Friday’s mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school — and demanding that the nation finally address gun control.

Tom Teves lost his son, Alex, in the July 20 shooting during a screening of the latest Batman movie in the Denver suburb of Aurora. Teves insisted that there is no need for the public to have access to weapons like the one allegedly used by the gunman in Connecticut.

The latest mass shooting came a day after Colorado’s governor called on lawmakers to start debating gun control measures.

University of Colorado student James Holmes is accused of purchasing a semi-automatic rifle and other weapons before killing 12 people and wounding 70 others in July.
