It's heart wrenching when weapons are wielded by the mentally impaired. It's also heart wrenching when a vaccine results in a complication in a miniscule percentage of patients. How is it we're able to rationally weigh a vaccine value despite some risk, but not weapons of self defense? It's not that the statistics are not known. It's a unreasoned fear of the horror. Well, people die from vaccines but we're able to reasonably assess when we'd be worse off without them.

We all know or rational folks knows this tragedy was a devil-send for marxists.
One more effort to push for gun control ,then total gun control.
It like the waa on tobaccy, 1st, no smoking on flights under 2 hrs, then 2 yrs later, no flights at all. then we must have smoking and non smoking sections. Then no non smoking section period. It's done "incrementally." First no so-called assault guns, then 9mm pistols etc, then hunting rifle which may be placed under assault weapons, then finally shotguns.They won't eat the whole enchilada at one time. but bite by bite until none is left.

And Farmers often lose life and limb in their machinery ... shall we risk starvation?

This morning, when I took my children to school, there was a guard at the gate for the first time.  Obviously, the school intended it as a thoughtful gesture for anxious mothers.

But that's the point.  Most of the "solutions" being touted offer only a false sense of security.  To that point, Ron Fournier had a compelling piece in today's National Journal, titled "What If Nothing or Nobody is to Blame for Adam Lanza?"  Fournier writes:

What if there is nothing or nobody to blame? Would that make this inexplicable horror unbearable?

What if we didn't rush to judgement?...
