If Newton was committed using a 12-gauge "hunting-style" shotgun would it be any different? The poor people would be just as dead.<quoted text>
Agreed. I can't even conceive of what the parents went through, when they went to funeral home to make arrangements to bury those babies and having to witness what an assault rifle does to a 40 lb. child? To look at the remains of your once healthy, alive, child and remember, the birth, first smile, first words, first steps, first tooth, first day of school and prepare their funeral and ask themselves,'was he in pain, did he ask for me, was her passing quick'? They just sent their kids to school and next time they see them they are ripped apart.
We have to do something.
Their right to live has to come before the right to own Military Weapons. Bottom line.
Only a handful of extremely well-vetted civilians own "military" weapons. Not a SINGLE ONE of them has EVER been used to injure anyone.
