I’ve been home all day today with a sick 7 month old baby (who is doing better, just a fever and congestion), and of course have been sickened by the horrible evil that took place at Sandy Hooks Elementary School today in Connecticut.
As I hold my son, and imagine anybody ever doing him harm, I am physically sick at the thought of what these poor parents and families are going through.
There will be much more news and details emerge in the hours, days, and weeks to come. But the Left is already gearing up the calls for more gun control. Even Obama during his emotional press statements, alluded to “we’ve had enough of these gun crimes, we’re going to do something about it.” I have zero doubt that “gun control” is exactly what he is talking about.
We all know that gun control is not only not the right answer, but that it is exactly the WRONG answer to evil crimes like these. All you have to do is look across the planet, where another evil monster in China stabbed to death a reported 22 children at their school. Guns are illegal in China. Which is not enough to stop a madman intent on killing innocents.
You know what is enough? A legally armed good guy.
Given the state laws in NJ and CT, it seems the gun-control regime desired by many was already in place.

But for now I’ll leave it with the words of Mark Levin, who wrote on Facebook a few moments ago: “This is hard to stomach. If you pray, pray hard for the deceased & their families. If you don’t pray,now would be a good time to start.”
Reports are that the killer has been identified as
24 20-year old Adam Ryan Lanza, and that his mother was a school teacher at the school, and that she was one of the murdered victims.
These two tweets appeared back-to-back in one of my lists:
Israel teachers are armed….not a shooting incident since 1974.Israel protects its own.

You might not like hearing that having more armed people will help, but it’s the only workable option in this country.

While Obama and Liberals will try to convince you that fewer guns is the answer, the opposite is actually the truth.
6 adults were mowed down by Adam Lanza today, along with those 20 children. Imagine if one, two, or all of those teachers/faculty would have had guns? How many children would they have saved? How many fewer of them would have been killed?
