JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): Dana, when you hear that people like Hillary Clinton, like Gabby Giffords are saying "This is a moment to have the conversation," what do you think?

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): Well, I think it's reasonable for after a -- after one of these incidents, for people to say "How can we prevent this from ever happening again?," but we don't even know what happened.

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Right.

PERINO: Sound familiar? So, that's why I think, like, waiting for just a moment to find out, because what if it turned out that there was some sort of ISIS connection? And that takes the NRA piece off the table. So, obviously this is a huge tragedy.

We will continue to have a gun control debate in this country, and there might be persuadable people if they could show some specific ways that they think it could actually be prevented. Maybe that could be brought to the voters, and we could all decide.
