No offense to these families, but do they really think that Lanza would have cared if the mags were grandfathered? Even Blummy admitted that new laws would not have prevented the tragedy. What is needed is a real mental health system, firm and swift punishment for criminals, and target hardening security measures which should include a legally armed citizenry.

I just read this letter. It was signed by 24 family members of only 11 of the victims. What about the other 15 victims, and why didn't their family members sign? What happened to the dad that testified in the hearings that the current laws should be enforced and no new laws are needed? Why isn't he being heard. This mag and semi auto rifle ban is nothing but a way to destroy the 2A and disarm the law abiding public. Again sorry about your children, but I want to protect my children from the Adam lanza's of this world.

All the school shooters were already drugged up by the mental health system.
The Physicians' Desk Reference lists the following adverse reactions (side effects) to psychaitric drugs among a host of other physical and neuropsychiatric effects. None of these adverse reactions (side effects) is listed as Rare. They are all listed as either Frequent or as Infrequent:
Manic Reaction (Mania, e.g., Kleptomania, Pyromania, Dipsomania, Nymphomania)
Hypomania (e.g., poor judgment, over spending, impulsivity, etc.)
Emotional Lability (Or Instability)
Alcohol Abuse and/or Craving
Akathisia (Severe Inner Restlessness)
Discontinuation (Withdrawal) Syndrome
School shootings ALL done by drugged kids, see http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/psych-meds-linked-...
I dont care about the gun debate. Stop the drugging of kids.

the Department of Homeland Security is unconstitutional . It is under the dept. of defence . Therefore the 30,000 drones to be used to spy on USA is illegal . Where was the media the night of December 14th ? Are we to believe the bodies were removed under cover of darkness and yet not a single person stuck around to get exclusive pix ? Really ? I'm sure the tabloids woulda paid a nice sum for those pix . So far nothing has surfaced . why ? Is it because it was a drill ? How many Jews are wanting the gun ban ? Why does Mario Cuomo , Baron Rothschld and Robbie Parker look so similar ? Could it be they are related ? hand
