  •  He killed 27 people (2+ / 0-)

    The gunman in Newtown killed 27 people not 26, 20 schoolchildren, 6 teachers and administrators  and his own mother.

    The burning of video games by the Southington group seems like a waste of time , money and donated gift certificates.   Better to give the gift certificates to someone like oh, all the young victims of gun violence in Bridgeport, Hartford and New Haven; Big Brothers Big Sisters; Boys and Girls Village, New Haven Reads, etc.  

    And maybe try to get the State to make it harder to buy weapons at for instance, gun shows. I know the state lege is actually working on this..although the fact that several of the gun manufacturers are based in Connecticut could make things interesting.
