As I watched television all day last Friday I found I couldn't remove myself from needing to know what was going on in Newton, CT. At first I was relieved that only 3 people were injured and then when the real truths started to come out my heart, my soul and my spirit couldn't stop crying. We need to attack this issue on multiple fronts Do we need to start screening our youth for mental instability? Better gun licensing procedures. What can we do because we can't keep waiting for someone else?

Sorry you feel a need to edit yourself. Any respectful contribution to the conversation is helpful. Your point about drug trafficking is so on point. But if we can reduce the numbers it has to make a difference. Doing nothing is unacceptable.
Many of us don't have a problem with the right to bear arms. But a rifle that rapid fires and clips with 30 bullets are only needed for a zombie Apocalypse. Attrition may be normal. I question that. But we know that Mass murder isn't.
I lived in the inner city for 20 yrs so I understand your feelings. But if you purchase one legally, get training, get licensed and keep it locked up there's a difference. Right now any unstable yahoo can buy an assault rifle at a gun show. Dee
I don't believe there is a difference if its purchased legally and locked up. Guns are stolen all the time that were locked up. People that purchase guns legally, still shoot other people for no reason at all, we just don't hear about it.
My feelings exactly. We are not doing something that we need to do. Thanks. Dee
I always wondered, what makes the president more special than the rest of us?(I know why) but another person's life is just as important as mine. I can't just stroll into the White House. Why Can we just stroll into a school? It's not weapons.
