  •  What could Obama have done? (8+ / 0-)

    All the gun control in the world wouldn't have stopped this - the gun control worked - the store wouldn't sell him a gun - so he took his Mothers.  The school doors were locked - he shot his way in.

    IMHO - Mental heath is what requires leadership - not more than a few miles away from the school was Fairfield Hills  - it was a campus for mentally ill - shut down by the State of CT - less than 15 miles form that is Southbury Training School - a functioning mental health facility yet it has been essentially shuttered by not accepting any new patients in over 10 years.  The state will shut that facility in the not too distant future.

    There is the insanity - when the truly needy go without the services they require.

    Good luck trying to remove the millions of unregistered cold guns from the US - a noble but a losing cause.  

    Fight for good mental health care and facilities.  Prisons are no place for the mentally ill.

    The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government. - Thomas Jefferson

    •  We need to do both - fight for gun control (6+ / 0-)

      and properly fund mental health services.

      There is no choice if we're going to prevent children from senselessly dying again.

      If his mother didn't have guns, Adam Lanza would not have guns neither. You are right- gun control stopped Adam Lanza from buying a gun. If gun control only stopped Nancy Lanza from buying her guns.she would still be alive today.

      You see, every illegal gun in this country, started out as legal guns. Just like every gun owner is a law abiding gun owner, until he decides to stop abiding by the law.
