On The Shootings and Gun Control

I’m sick about what happened in Connecticut today.

I’m not saying I’m for any particular form of gun control. I don’t have answers about what the best solution is for the problem of gun violence. But I do NOT want to hear that we can’t talk about it, which is currently the position of just about every politician of either party.

No, today’s shooting would not have been prevented if a couple of those kids had had guns. And I wish some people on the other side of this issue would show as much anger about the deaths of several children as they are about Bob Costas going on TV and tentatively suggesting gun control.

Also, if we find out the gunman was Muslim, it’ll become terrorism. Otherwise it’s just a shooting and there’s nothing we can do about it.
