Walker Talks About School Shooting
(AP) Gov. Scott Walker says there are no perfect solutions to preventing a repeat of last week's mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. During an interview Tuesday, Walker says it will take several weeks to get a true answer on what led to the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary, where a 20-year-old gunman killed 20 children and six adults before taking his own life.
Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry supports allowing teachers and administrators to carry concealed handguns. But, Walker says any politician that provides a simple answer at this point is jumping to conclusions.
The governor says early intervention for those with mental health issues and access to community-based care are matters that need to be addressed.

Fundraiser For Suicide Support Group Brings In $5K
More than five thousand dollars was raised over the weekend in La Crosse, to help fund a suicide prevention group.
Dave Clements of the La Crosse Convention Bureau says this was the fourth year of the fund-raiser at Schmidty's restaurant. Clements founded the 'Joe Was Just Joe Foundation' after his son committed suicide nearly five years ago. A silent auction brought in much of the money, including 125 dollars for a poster promoting a 1985 John Mellencamp concert at the La Crosse Center, when Clements was the center manager.
