The Tucson shooting has renewed a national debate about gun control. Democrats Rep. Carolyn McCarthy of New York and Sen. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey said they plan to introduce legislation targeting the high-capacity ammunition clip used by accused shooter Jared Lee Loughner in the attack. McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train.
