  •  If Newtown were Detroit (0+ / 0-)

    The outpouring would be the same - people are people.

    Sorry - I disagree.

    I do agree that far too many children of all colors die needlessly.

    I truly believe that preventing a Newtown is almost impossible - but fighting poverty - teaching the importance of two parent households and getting a good education are all possible.  That combined with reasonable gun control would greatly reduce the overall number of deaths far more than an Easter egg hunt for a one in a billion psychotic killer.

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