Prevent another tragedy

When President Barack Obama was elected, the firearm community was in an uproar, spreading their fearmongering doctrine that Obama was out to take away their guns.

Now as violent mass-murder gun crimes escalate, it is time to change laws and re-examine which firearms belong under the Second Amendment. By not supervising their own, the unsupervised have brought upon their own community its worst fear — government intervention.

Let us "highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain," that by recognizing that we now live in a different world and that change is necessary, that the tragic and horrific events of Sandy Hook Elementary may never occur again.
