Gun control has always been a major issue of debate in America — right up alongside the more recently heated topics of abortion, same-sex marriage and health care — but the tragic shooting of 71 people during a Colorado theater’s showing of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has given this controversy a brand new spotlight.

Starting at 10:10 pm on Friday and finishing approximately 25 minutes later, 33-year-old Nik Wallenda completed a death-defying stunt that left everyone in attendance in awe. The daredevil aerialist balanced his way across Niagra Falls on a tight rope, becoming the first man to perform this feat.
