Tonights CBS interview with the families clearly showed the emotion and strain this tragedy has produced. Such a loss will always be felt and nothing will replace it. Not even removing every gun on earth. Some things still are far from adding up. In their greif what led or directed them to become anti-gunners? Actually, who, might be the proper question. The mental health issue, which clearly caused this, was barely touched. Even if a perfectly well adjusted citizen went off the edge and did this, there would be at least a short term mental issue there. The "why" of this was never addressed either leaving the question for me at least, what really caused this? Since the Police are trying to claim Adam wanted to out-do the Norweigian shooter, why didn't he wait until the hundreds of children were out of school waiting for the buses? It sadly appears healing will not happen for many of these families as they want to take their anti-gun campaign to D.C. and never let anyone forget these child victims. It appears to be a sad choice for a life purpose since they were led into this.

Let's see-- there were over 9,000 murders committed in the US last year.

Of those, 323 were committed using ANY KIND of rifle.

Of those 323, a very few were committed using an "assault rifle". A couple dozen. Maybe.

This country is going bankrupt, we have unemployment over 7.5% for OVER FOUR YEARS, our children aren't getting educated, the administration is corrupt as hell, and we're OBSESSED ABOUT A COUPLE DOZEN MURDERS.

I understand the grief of losing a child. It is a terrible thing, the worst that any parent will ever experience. But as we sink into economic chaos how many more Chicago-style murder rates do you suppose we'll see across this country REGARDLESS of a stupid "assault" weapon law?

By the way, what the hell is an "assault" weapon? Is that a weapon that is scary? Would they not be "assault weapons" if they were pink and had Hello Kitty stickers on them?

Why do you keep pushing your 'Sandy Hoax?'
It never happened.
Where are the autopsy reports and death certificates for the dead?
Where are the pictures of the dead kids?
Where is the security camera video of the incident?
Where is Adam Lanza's autopsy report, and death certificate?

“And what would "Better comprehensive background checks" have done to prevent Sandy Hook? Hmmm???“
Guess we’ll never get to find out the answer to that question.
By the way, he didn’t need to steal the firearms. His mother gave him guns as gifts.
Posthumous gifts, huh? Your lies are growing pathetic.

There is a site out there that swears Sandy Hook was a sham Created by the government to hurry gun control. Then they waited too long, and their scam was discovered. The site claims some of the supposed dead children have been photographed after the incident. I am not sure about that, but it wouldn't take much for the government to find some crazy, and convince him he should go on a rampage, especially if they weren't getting their gun control fast enough

Apparently it doesn't take much to find you crazy. The very fact that you would give this lunacy any kind of credence means you're teetering toward going over the edge.

I think it is easier to believe then to believe in the failed Presidency of Barack Obama. He is from Chicago. He is as corrupt as the rest of the Chicago pols. You just hate the fact Obama is not going to get his gun control. It looks like he is not going to get much of anything this session.

Absolutely correct. These polls are all taken in the socialist liberal areas to get the results they want. I watched an interview of a gun dealer today, and he said he sold a average of three years worth of firearms in three months.
If you consider liberalism and socialism synonyously, that proves you know nothing about either. Just keep following the Tea Party line.

The Founders were NOT nationalists They were Freemasons and Zionists . They wrote the Constitution as a joke . Article VI says a treaty with any entity supercedes the Constitution . In effect the UN which is not a country can draft a treaty abolishing the Constitution , and if the president and Congress signs it . BYE BYE rights .The Zionists already own the money and all the USA gold . Wake up before the movie ends . It is time for a script change .

......It's not the hoax lid I keep trying to pry up, it's what really made Adam go off like that. You don't believe that part even happened, so do others, but the secrecy part is the politics here. You don't know of the crimes Blumenthal has covered up or how crooked the entire state of Ct. is. Blumenthals father-in-law owns a lot of stuff like media and tons of real estate like the Empire State Building. I think the anti-gun platform is a great two fer for the DemocRats. Lose the armed citizenry and take everyones mind off the oil companies robbing us. I live here and the politicians aren't sharing much at all. I strongly believe the cops broke the computer.
