Because Sandy Hook will happen again. And again. And it will keep on happening as long as we turn a blind eye to the fact that our gun control laws are totally out of whack. There have been 58 school and mass shootings in the United States since 1996. What makes us think the Newtown tragedy will be the last? Many gun owners like to say the government wants to take away their freedom. They say guns don’t kill people, people kill people. That’s true. But what they don’t say is that the people who kill people kill them with automatic and semi-automatic assault weapons that are not intended for anything else other than mass killing. Who needs an Uzi submachine gun with a 25 round clip for hunting, sport or self-defense? No one.
