  •  George I'm sorry for you and Newtown. (5+ / 0-)

    I'm just up I-84 in Danbury.  The victims of this carnage all came to the hospital here which I can see from my window.  This is too close to home.  My kid was in school and I got a message from the superintendent about the school being locked down because of the shooting.  NOT a call a parent wants to get.

    I'm really getting sick of pro gun people today.  No patience for them.  Yeah the guns were purchased legally but they were obtained by her son illegally.  He didn't have a permit.  

    I have yet to hear a credible excuse for why a kindergarten school teacher in NEWTOWN had several semi automatic guns in her house to begin with.  What practical purpose did she have for them?  Opening cans?  Shooting wild turkeys invading her property?  While she certainly had a right, she obviously wasn't responsible with them and unfortunately it cost her and several other innocent people their lives.  Including children.  20 of them.  One could have been my friend's son but fortunately he's safely at home in the arms of his dad and mom, both wonderful people (even though I disagree with them politically on almost everything).  

    This whole thing sickens me.  Why did a 27 year old teacher from Stratford have to die.  She gave up her life to save the children she hid in a closet.  What the fuck was the purpose of that.  Heroic people like that should be elevated to the highest stratus of our society, not fucking gunned down in an elementary school.  

    I don't give a rats ass about the 2nd amendment.  Fuck guns 'right' advocates.  Enough is enough.  Along with those rights come deadly serious responsibilities and just because one gun owner is responsible it doesn't mean ALL are.  Guns should NOT be readily available.  Especially guns used for war.  No practical purpose for them in a fucking civilized society.  You want a fucking gun, prove you're worthy, capable and responsible enough to fucking own one.  Let's stop mass producing them and stop selling them in fucking Walmart.  Why is it that some of the the same motherfuckers who don't want a national registry for gun owners want to fucking tag every brown skinned person that comes into our country with a bar code?  Here's an idea, GO FUCK YOURSELF.  Only way to prevent some wacko from NJ from going to Arizona, buying a huge cache 'legally' and using them in CT is by having strict national laws and a national registry.  It's high time we got serious and educated about the issue and tell the NRA to go to hell.

    BTW sorry about the rant but this was TOO close to home.  Even closer for you.  If you need anything let me know.  Only 15 minutes up the road.    

    This is your world These are your people You can live for yourself today Or help build tomorrow for everyone -8.75, -8.00
