Medina Mora says he hopes the Newtown shooting will, in his words, "catalyze the necessary societal support for a change in the regulations that will be more favourable to the interests of our country."

According to the study, the vote shift from Gore to Bush due to Fox News was 10,757 votes in Florida. This was larger than Bush’s 537 vote margin...
