NORWAY (CNN) - The bomb and gun rampage that left 77 people dead in Norway last summer could have been avoided...
That's according to a report released today by the independent commission charged with investigating Norway's worst massacre since World War II.

The suspect, Anders Breivik, is on trial for the bombing in central Oslo and a deadly shooting spree at a youth camp on Utoya Island.

The report criticizes Norway's gun controls as "inadequate," and suggests a failure to understand that one person could cause so much devastation.

Norway's prime minister took responsibility for the country's lapse in preparedness but stopped short of resigning.
