WASHINGTON, [DC]--Friday's shooting spree at a Colorado Springs, Colo. Planned Parenthood clinic was not an act of terrorism in the opinion of the House Homeland Security Committee’s chairman. "It's a tragedy... It's, I think, a mental health crisis," said Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) on ABC News’s "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." "I don't think it would fall under quite the definition of domestic terrorism, although I'll leave that to the Justice Department to make that determination," he added. The Planned Parenthood shootings, allegedly committed by Robert Lewis Dear, left three people dead, including a police officer, and nine others wounded. The latest reports are that the shooter expressed anti-abortion and anti-government views. McCaul and the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep, Adam Schiff (R-Calif.), both agreed in their interview on "This Week" that more needs to be done to ensure that mentally ill people cannot get access to firearms.
