    Phil, My sentiments exactly.  People are quick to demonize Adam Lanza  and the family of the shooter. Yet we know next to nothing about him.  But it is easy to infer from the circumstances, that he was "troubled"  did not have access for whatever reason, to good mental healthcare.  He did however have access to weapons, and plenty of them.  Citizens come together and offer their condolences to victims of violence.  But when it comes to enacting real change to the laws that allow the guns to flow freely into the hands of the untrained and the unhinged, these same compassionate citizens are strangely silent. I'm frustrated, but like you, I'm awake and will not rest until our representatives start listening!!!!!!!
