Jay, I'm really not trying to insult anyone here... There are many reasons why these tragedies happen, but video games, hollywood movies, poor parenting, and mental health issues are all secondary to easy access to the types of weapons that can kill the maximum amount of people in the shortest amount of time. Why is it that the majority of the people on this board ignore this?

There are now calls from the Left for gun control legislation in response to Adam Lanza's unconscionable mass killing of innocent children at Sandy Hook Elementary. However, very few people seem to be asking the most basic question of all before getting started: What gun control legislation could have stopped Adam Lanza?

The answer is "none."
