Because Everybody Is Entitled To My Opinion

Pray for the Families of Sandy Hook Elementary

I don't have the words right now to say how I feel. I am saddened greatly by this atrocious act. I can only offer prayers for the families who have lost children in this tragedy.

I guess mostly I feel numb. There is so much to take in. I am also dismayed and annoyed at the speed in which the media and anti-second amendment supporters have turned this into another opportunity to attack gun ownership.

First the media is quick to point out that this is the second worst school shooting in history. I find that a bit dehumanizing because it means someone took the time to reduce the tragedy to body counts and ranked it with other killings.

Second people are screaming gun control very loudly. The President in his remarks also alluded to some form of action:
“As a country we have been through this too many times,” Obama added. “We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.”
I'm glad he had the time to get that little dig in between tears. This is not an issue of Politics. The Second Amendment is settled and not subject to "political" action.

The fallacy here is that somehow people believe that this tragedy could have been prevented by simply passing a law at some point in the past that would have made this all illegal. Armed with that notion the liberals plan to control our lives by legislating proper behavior into existence. Guns are bad. Ban them all and no one will ever shoot up a school or a mall ever again. Their ignorance and arrogance grates on my nerves especially in this case. They dishonor the fallen and their families by pushing their agenda.
