The Victims of Sandy Hook

Sandy Hook Victims
This list shakes me to the very core of my being.  The children were all 6 and 7 years old.  I am incapable of grasping how a person could shoot these tiny ones — and at close range.

I find it unfathomable that gun advocates continue to deny that change is needed. I’m angry that my country has the highest rate of gun ownership in the world–more than double the rate of the next nearest country–and yet, gun advocates want us to believe that MORE gun ownership is the solution. Our rate of murders by gun is far above any other country in the world. We have a sick form of gun worship here tied to the gun lobby and a fraudulent interpretation of the Constitution.

It’s sick! It’s INSANE. It has to stop. The people who own guns are not reasonable people and do not want to be part of the solution. So be it. Let’s do it without them. I do not believe we should just throw up our hands in despair and say there is nothing we can do. There’s plenty we can do. And it can start with debunking the ridiculous idea that the Constitution says that no gun of any type should be banned from any person for any reason.

26 Dead in a Shooting at an Elementary School.

I can’t imagine any response other than profound grief.

Apparently the shooter – who is dead – was only 20 years.  18 children dead.

Let’s fucking talk about gun control.
