EDITOR: It is depressing to see how politicians feast upon the tragedies suffered by innocents. Our founding fathers included the Second Amendment because they knew that control or confiscation of guns is the first step toward placing the population under the thumb of government or those in power. The tragedy in Connecticut, as horrific as it was, was not caused because of a weapon but because of a deranged individual. The cry for legislation is a knee-jerk reaction of the politicians. More legislation is not the answer.
The political hypocrisy is appalling. How can the president be considered sincere about his sympathy for those who lost loved ones when he allows the execution of thousands of helpless individuals each and every day through abortions? Let's quit sacrificing our children to appease false gods and ask God to take control back.
People asked where God was in the Connecticut tragedy. He was outside, where we relegated him. Take God out of the schools, society, our nation, and Satan will move in - has moved in.
