Today, most of the nation is in mourning because of the unspeakable tragedy that took place in Sandy Hook, CT., where 27 innocent people were assassinated, 20 of them young children. Things like this are not easily explained, even for someone who spent his last eleven years with the NYPD as a Homicide Investigator. In this case, we are either looking at insanity, or pure evil. Our society is filled with examples of both. Personally, his motive really doesn't matter to me. I'm one who truly believes that anyone convicted of a violent crime against a child, including and especially a crime of a sexual nature, should be summarily executed. We can discuss their motives after they're dead.
I said that today, "most" of the nation is mourning. Unfortunately, but not at all surprising, there are those who would use this tragedy to further their own Leftist political agenda. As usual, the anti-gun nuts are starting to crawl out of the woodwork. They never miss an opportunity to call for banning guns. And make no mistake, when they say "a ban on assault weapons", what they mean is a "total ban on all guns"! I'm still waiting for one of them to explain, if "assault weapons" are banned, which weapons does that leave? Non-assault weapons? Also, should we ban cars so the next psycho won't be able to get to his targets? The one thing we know for sure is, facts and logic and rational thought will not stop the anti-gun zealots.
Most of us here are gun owners and shooters, and we know what to expect from the Left in the coming weeks and months. I truly doubt the Marxist-in-Chief will pass-up this opportunity to feed his Leftist base. Besides, total gun control is something he has always wanted. Now, IMO, using this tragedy, he'll go for it and at the same time, make himself look good to the general public. It's a win-win for him. I believe the 2nd Amendment is about to be attacked. Again.
I truly hope God has warmly taken their young souls into his open arms...
