Jared Lee Loughner allegedly opened fire in Tucson, Saturday, killing 6 and injuring 13, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The families of the victims, including federal Judge John Roll, Congressional aide Gabe Zimmerman and 9 year-old Christina Taylor Green will be forever changed. Many are wondering if enough was done to prevent the shooting. We talk to Nick Wilcox, whose daughter Laura Wilcox was shot and killed by a mentally unstable man 10 years ago.
Since then, Wilcox pushed for the passage of Laura's Law, which allows counties to adopt court-ordered outpatient treatment for people with severe mental illness.
