..."Just where does a young man of 20 get the idea of going into a school and start killing?" Think of it this way: Mere possession of child pornography is a serious crime. Naked pictures of children, adult models which appear underage, even drawings which had no model are illegal. Imagine a video game where the object is to have sex with as many children as possible - my stomach turns. . . But you can get video games, where the object is to KILL as many as possible. No problem, it's "protected" by the 1st Amendment, so we're told. And what's the harm, anyway? It's just a game, it's just fantasy. . . So which is worse? Killing a child, or just having sex with her? Why are games with killing OK, but not sex? Game control, not gun control.

Nothing strikes deeper to the heart than the loss of children. It's one more reason why the horror in Newtown, Conn., has hurt our nation so badly.

I do not believe there is any human suffering like the suffering of a parent who loses a child.

I know it from personal experience. I lost a beautiful, young teenage daughter almost 10 years ago, and the pain never goes away.

When tragedy strikes, we want to do something. It is a natural human instinct that when we suffer, we conclude it is because something is broken and to want...
