On Sunday, August 5, police say Wade Michael Page walked into a Sikh temple where worshippers were preparing for an 11:30 a.m service just outside of Milwaukee Wisconsin, pointed a 9mm pistol he'd recently purchased, and opened fire on the congregants without saying a word.
The gunman killed at least six people before police killed him. Since then a portfolio of the killer is beginning to emerge. Page was an ex-Army serviceman who had recently formed two neo-Nazi white supremist bands, according to some sources.
The gun was reportedly purchased legally at Shooters Shop in West Allis, Wisconsin, about 12 miles from his home.
The shooting once again draws out the debate over the Second Amendment right to bear arms, and whether or not citizens should be allowed access to semi-automatic weaponry or handguns. For today's Talk Back, we ask:
Do you think the recent shooting at a Sikh temple should make us reconsider licensing semi-automatic weapons to citizens?
