You know, it's a whole new world out there than it was in the late 1700's. I believe in the constitution whole heartedly but I also know that our forefathers never dreamed there would be guns like we have today. Since this is MY blog I get to voice MY opinion. First off, my husband owns 2 guns. A shotgun and a muzzleloader. He uses them for hunting and they would protect us if needed. I can not justify ANYONE other than law enforcement that needs assaults rifles. I don't care who you are. You will never convince me otherwise. There seems to be a lot of people who are protesting that the government will take your guns and then keep taking all your freedoms. That's bull. This country is in a mess because elected officials, once in office, forget why the people voted them in, to represent the citizens of their state.
After the killing in CT ThePeople need to stand up and voice their opinion. It's not just the guns. It's mental illness too. There are many in prison who should be in a different environment that would help them yet keep them locked up so they can't hurt themselves or others. The time to confront these issues is long, long past and this needs settled before more people are killed.
Those precious children and brave faculty didn't deserve to have a country that let them down.
