MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO. (KPLR) - This week on The Pulse Of St. Louis, we look into how something like the mass killings in Colorado keep happening.   How could someone have amassed so much firepower and go unnoticed?  

And we also discuss why a tragedy in a movie theater garners so much media attention, when the streets of many of our major cities, including St. Louis have become "killing fields" yet don't get near as much attention.

How do those guns so easily wind up in the hands of criminals and what can be done to stop it?
