In wake of the tragedy at Sandy Hook, many people in the nation are rethinking our gun laws.
Federal laws prohibit the sale of firearms to those declared mentally unfit by a court.

Finally! Some good news!
The pace of the meningitis outbreak has been slowing down.
Though don't celebrate just yet.
The numbers have still risen since we last reported them.
There are now 438 cases in 19 states. The death toll is 32.
Around 14,000 people are possibly at risk after having gotten the contaminated steroid shots.
They could potentially get the disease as well.

Check out the video (above) to learn a little more about some of the new developments in this awful outbreak.
