While the killing spree in Arizona was appalling, why has Congress decided to postpone all legislative action that had been scheduled for this entire week? This event took place in Arizona, not in the Capitol building, so it is not as if there had been a breach in building security that needed to be fixed.

This kind of mass killing occurs unfortunately all too often in work and educational environments in the US and yet people in the very places where the shootings occur usually get back to work the next day, except for the crime scene itself. Why is Congress any different?
