Families of the victims are doing their best to honor the memories of their loved ones after 13 people, including the gunman, were killed in Monday's rampage. Meanwhile, Andrew Spencer reports the shootings at the Washington Navy Yard are reigniting the debate over gun control. An animal lover and a hockey fan, 62-year-old Kathy Gaarde was nearing retirement. "We were trying to pick the best time for her to retire," says her husband, Douglass Gaarde. "She was pretty much planning on probably this January, toward the end of the year." Kenneth Proctor, a civilian utilities foreman with a son in Army basic training. Mary Knight, a contractor and adjunct professor. Martin Bodrog, a Sunday school teacher and 22-year Navy veteran who oversaw the design and procurement of Navy ships. "Everything about Marty, just a great guy, wonderful husband, father," says Ron Early, Bodrog's neighbor. Michael Arnold, an avid pilot, all of them were among the 12 people killed Monday by a gunman at the Washington Navy Yard. A former Navy reservist, 34-year-old Aaron Alexis, was able to keep his security clearance after a pattern of misconduct, which U.S. Navy Rear Admiral John Kirby refered to as administrative offenses. "While certainly not commendable offenses for a Navy sailor, don't rise to the level that would instantly call for a revocation of a security clearance," said Kirby. And at a gun store in Virginia, despite an apparent history of mental illness and several run-ins with the law, Alexis was also able to buy a Remington 870 pump-action shotgun, which he used in Monday's rampage. President Barack Obama said Tuesday, tougher background checks might have prevented Monday's shootings. Advocates in the Senate say they're several votes shy of passing any legislation that would better prevent felons or mentally ill people from buying guns.
