I've spoken with him, and the impression I got was that somebody stuck a microphone in his face and started peppering him with questions before he could wrap his head around the shooting.
Glad to see him come back to the "right" side of the issue. When the reporters get into a feeding frenzy as they are apt to do when they smell blood in the water around conservatives, why don't our conservative politicians say something to the effect of, "I'll need a little time to review what really happened here and then take an informed position, rather than an immediate and emotional one. I'll be happy to state my position once I've had some time to reflect on this recent atrocity. 26 people have just been gunned down in cold blood. Let's take some time to grieve about them and with their families before we go all political over it." That would garner some very appropriate respect, I would tend to believe.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams.
