Today it is a mass killing at elementary school in Connecticut.
Before that it was a mass shooting in Oregon. And California, And Colorado. And on and on.
Too many guns in America. Too easily available to the deranged, angry or anyone with a drudge. Or mad at a spouse.
And we are not supposed to talk about the gun issue. Republicans and Democrats are afraid of the NRA bullies and its followers. They will say today is not the time to talk about the gun issue. But there never seems to be a day to talk about the need to stop the gun proliferation.
We will soon hear from the NRA and apologists for the gun merchants that guns don't kill people--it is always something else to blame for these shootings.
Well now we have multiple schoolchildren dead.
What do I tell my children when they come home today from a school they presume is about the safest place they can be?
