Former Vice President Dick Cheney, a staunch gun advocate, says tighter weapons regulations might be "appropriate" to prevent another tragedy like the Arizona mass shootings that left six people dead and a congresswoman seriously wounded.
Cheney, an avid hunter, said he is "willing to listen to ideas" on how to better control the purchase and use of firearms.
"Whether or not there's some measure there in terms of limiting the size of the magazine that you can buy to go with a semiautomatic weapon weve had that in place before. Maybe its appropriate to re-establish that kind of thing, but I think you do have to be careful obviously," Cheney told NBC's Jamie Gangel, national correspondent for "TODAY."
"Were looking for ways to make sure this never happens again, but youve still got to go back to the fact that it looks like the cause of this particular tragedy was this one individual who apparently has very serious mental problems," Cheney said in the interview, parts of which aired Wednesday.

Three paragraphs to say absolutely nothing.
Why is Cheney even getting a platform on this issue?
Cheney should of been retired and dead a long time ago. Him and McCain.
