Politicians use tragedy to infringe on our rights

On Dec. 14, one of the most atrocious acts in our great country's history was carried out in Connecticut as six innocent adults and 20 innocent children had their lives taken from them. On Dec. 14, our hearts broke for the families directly affected by this tragedy. On Dec. 16, in a speech to the families affected by this tragedy President Barack Obama did the unthinkable; he used this tragedy to try and advance his political agenda; even while the tearful families had not yet buried their loved ones.

In the following days the national media outlets played the same tune and countless politicians used this tragedy to attack our Second Amendment rights. These politicians have tried to paint the picture that a new law or new regulatory measure imposed on us would prevent what happened that December morning from happening again. The politicians have pushed this agenda using this tragedy and slogans like "military-style weapons" to try and sway public opinion while the victims' families have had no time to heal. This crooked behavior is wrong.

Washington needs to respect the families of the Newtown tragedy and find another means to advance their radical agenda to reduce the individual and limit our Second Amendment freedoms.
