Marvelous story! Wish our politicians could catch on to this! I'm taking a baseball glove and autographed baseball (Durham Bulls -Triple A) to a bartender at the hotel where the group of university students I am taking soon will be staying - stayed here before with other study abroad groups I have led.

Still a heart warming story and at this Christmas season an example of how we ought to be as a nation toward our brothers and sisters in Cuba!

Merry Christmas to the children of Cuba who will receive this baseball equipment! Never mind the Grinchs on this site who, because of the Cuban government, don't like this story and would much prefer these innocent children go without this baseball equipment, so they can appear to be patriotic and brave defenders of freedom!!

The NRA is remaining silent out of respect for the families. They understand that during this time, when memorials are still ongoing, it is not appropriate to speak out. When the time is right, the NRA will be prepared to speak, ad people will listen!!
The only 'fierce debate' is coming from the reactionary, emotional liberals who hated guns before the murderous rampage and will hate guns long after its memory fades These modern-day book burners are ignorant and afraid, and are lashing out in a predictable manner simply to capitalize on a national tragedy. Shameful!
