Schwarzenegger calls for wider gun debate

LONDON (AP) - Arnold Schwarzenegger has called for American leaders to think beyond gun laws in seeking ways to stop shooting tragedies.

The 65-year-old action star was in London on Tuesday for the U.K. premiere of the film "The Last Stand," his first leading role since serving as California's governor for seven years.

He says that U.S. leaders need to address issues such as parenting and mental illness as well as laws on firearms when discussing ways to reduce gun violence.

Schwarzenegger's comments come as American politicians are under pressure to respond to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, last month, in which a gunman killed 20 students and six staff.
