Obama to comfort families of movie theater victims

President Barack Obama has arrived in Colorado to meet with families of those gunned down Friday in a movie theater.

Air Force One touched down late Sunday afternoon at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora. The president's hastily arranged visit includes a private meeting with the victims' loved ones and meetings with state and local officials about the shooting early Friday morning at a busy multiplex.

It is Obama's second trip in less than a month to comfort Colorado residents. He made a quick visit in late June to Colorado Springs, where hundreds of homes were destroyed in the most devastating wildfire in the state's history.

The shock of Friday's mass shooting brought the presidential campaign to a standstill for the weekend.
