  •  How much did Sandy Hook cost? (0+ / 0-)

    I mean, why don't we just pay it off and call it even?  

    I don't particularly disagree with the principle of having gun owners pay for the burden they impose on the rest of society, but I don't think it goes far enough.  

    On average, children (just children, mind you) are killed by guns at a rate of one in three days.  That's one Sandy Hook for every two months.  That's Sixty-Six (66) Sandy Hooks since 9-11.  Over a thousand children killed.  Each one shot to death.  Can we just pay that off and call it even?  If so, whom do we pay?  

    The problem is not the fees.  It's the guns.  Get rid of the guns.   Anything less is murder.
