      Exploiting Tragedies?

      Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin says recent mass shootings have prompted leaders in Washington, D.C., to exploit tragedy in order to limit the freedoms of law-abiding people.

      Palin spoke at the National Rifle Association's convention Friday afternoon in Houston.

      She said while she and others were saddened and angered by December's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, the emotions that have resulted from it won't make anybody safer and won't "protect the good guys' rights."

      The former governor of Alaska asked those at the convention to "keep the faith" and "stand up and fight for our freedoms."

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Do you believe leaders in Washington D.C. are exploiting shooting tragedies in order to limit gun freedoms of law-abiding citizens? Yes or no? Why or why not?
