JAMES ROSEN (GUEST HOST): We may be tempted to believe that we've seen this movie before in terms of a push for gun control after some horrific mass shooting like this. Is this going to end the same way?
MARA LIASSON: I think so. If after Sandy Hook, when you had all those little kids gunned down there was no push or no receptivebility for gun control in the U.S. Congress. I would say this will probably meet the same fate. However, Donald Trump has made policy prescriptions, you could call that politicizing right after other mass shootings, generally if they were committed by a Muslim, he said this shows we need the Muslim ban. So there is precedent for talking about a policy solution after a mass shooting.
