It's become a depressing ritual that follows a mass shooting in America.

As details pour in about why and how another gunman slayed a bunch of strangers (or sometimes co-workers), politicians who have largely opposed tightening the nation's gun laws issue statements like the one Gov. Rick Scott did on Sunday.
