<p>It took only 12 minutes into their live coverage on Thursday night of the deadly movie theater shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana, but <em>CNN Tonight</em> quickly invoked gun control and President Obama with panelists lamenting the lack of <strong>&ldquo;sufficient common sense&rdquo;</strong> on guns, the need for a <strong>&ldquo;more realistic in a interpretation of the Second Amendment&rdquo;</strong> and that the issue will go down in history as President Obama&rsquo;s<strong> &ldquo;biggest defeat.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>When host Don Lemon asked legal analyst Sunny Hostin for her thoughts on the tragedy, Hostin brought up previous shooting before turning to President Obama&rsquo;s interview hours earlier with the BBC and how <strong>&ldquo;one of the things that frustrates him the most is the fact the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not seem to have sufficient common sense to have gun safety laws even in the face of these repeated mass killings.&rdquo;</strong></p>
