  •  Yup no one ever talks about the families destroyed (8+ / 0-)

    only about the number of deaths.  For many parents that lost their children (and siblings/friends/relatives, but mostly parents) this will forever weigh on their spirits - some will recover sufficiently to live productive lives, but others will not.  So you are absolutely right, the number of victims is much greater than the number shot to death.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

    •  Gun owners (NRA) would love not discussing guns. (3+ / 0-)

      That is exactly their game.  The fact the real human being, little children, in fact are dead as a result of a gun-of-mass-destruction isn't an area of responsibility they want to take.  The more the NRA can dehumanize the Newtown shooting, the more influence they can use to push their agenda on their paid congressmen.
