People sympathize more deeply losing children than any other demographic; their innocence sets them apart. People were heavily disturbed by the Aurora Batman shooting, but since the target was so arbitrary, we moved on. Because children were targeted, we're in an uproar. I think it's sort of sad that it took such an incredibly violent act to finally get something in motion. But, at least something's happening.
