Alas, when you use logic, facts, sanity and a moral compass, your speech falls on deaf ears in this country. Crazies and criminals do the shooting. The NRA is blamed. Pass more gun laws and crazies and criminals will have fewer obstacles in their way. The laws have been proven to not be obstacles. Others carrying a weapon or willing to stop the shooters are the only defense. Question...if someone throws a wrench at someone else, hitting that person and resulting in that person's death, should the wrench manufacturer be blamed and should we attack the American Hardware Manufacturers Association, pitchforks in hand?

In the aftermath of the horrific Newtown, Conn., school massacre, Americans from all parts of the political spectrum agree that we need to pay more attention to mental health issues. Public death threats and incitements to violence must be taken seriously. The incendiary witch hunt against law-abiding, peaceful gun owners is neither noble nor effective. It's just plain insane.

Over the past week, I've witnessed a disturbing outbreak of off-the-rails hatred toward gun owners and Second Amendment groups. Whatever your views on guns, we can all agree: The Newtown gunman was a monster who slaughtered his own mother, five heroic educators...
