'Gun Culture' -- What About the 'Fatherless Culture'?

A quick question...which killed more children in the past 10 years...guns of ay kind, or Planned Parenthood? No one disputes that Sandy Hook was a tragedy of the first magnitude, and we should not take the issues Sandy Hook raises lightly. But for the love of Pete, spare me the righteous indignation about "for the kids," liberals, when you have made it perfectly clear that you want babies to die, and you want to preserve a woman's "right to choose" the death of her child.

Give us a break. Whether or not abortion is legal, it's going to happen. There were hundreds of thosuands of abortions each year BEFORE Roe v. Wade.

I can understand a young woman not wanting to have a baby. Before we had the technology to prove that the bible was right, that a PERSON is there from Conception, I could understand thinking it was ok to remove that little bit of flesh. But now, everyone knows for a fact that they are killing a baby when they have an abortion. With that in mind, I simply can't understand why it is allowed. We are endowed by our creator with the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Why does anyone think it's ok to deprive a baby of it's life just because it hasn't been born yet? Anyone miss the cognitive dissonance of trying a murderer for 2 murders when they kill a pregnant woman? HOW COULD YOU NOT?

The face of gun violence is not Sandy Hook. It is Chicago.

In 2012, President Barack Obama's adopted hometown had 506 murders, including more than 60 children. Philadelphia, a city that local television newscasters frequently call 'Killadelphia," saw 331 killed last year. In Detroit, 386 people were murdered.

Since 1966, there have been 90 school shootings in the U.S., with 231 fatalities. Yes, Sandy Hook shocked us. But the odds of a child being killed at a school shooting are longer than the odds of being struck by lightning.

Of the 11,000 to 12,000 gun murders each...
