Shooting victims

Thousands gathered in San Bernardino at a candlelight prayer vigil to honor the 14 men and women killed in the shooting at the Inland Regional Center. Family and friends honored their loved ones by offering a glimpse into who they were and how they lived their lives.

Suspect's sister

As investigators sort through evidence picked up at the San Bernardino shooting suspects' Redlands home, family members say they're in disbelief. Suspected gunman Syed Rizwan Farook's sister Saira and her husband Farhan Kahn say they share the heartache felt by their community and their country.

President Obama

Negotiators from around the world are now in the middle of two weeks of talks in Paris, trying to reach an agreement to limit global warming. President Obama spoke to "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell at the White House about his effort to fight climate change and his hopes of leaving behind a legacy on the issue.

Human shields

As the air war against ISIS expands and the group finds itself under increasing pressure on the ground, a senior White House official says its adherents are turning more and more to a desperate tactic that takes advantage of America's desire to kill terrorists without causing civilian casualties.

Gun laws

With shooting incidents becoming more and more frequent, pressure is mounting on lawmakers to take action. We look at five ideas that Democrats and Republicans have offered up to try and address the problem, and how far some of those ideas have gone in terms of becoming the law of the land.

Tech vs. terror

Renewed fear of terrorism around the world is raising pressure on technology companies to join government law enforcement agencies in fighting back. But there are some very real concerns that consumer privacy could suffer as a result.

Tax breaks

Businesses are set to receive billions of dollars in tax breaks under the bipartisan spending bill moving its way through Congress. Is that good public policy aimed at making U.S. companies more competitive, or unnecessary corporate welfare compounding the national debt?
