Here is the real question strictly pertaining to past and FUTURE acts like those in Newtown. What is the only thing that can stop a lunatic with a gun hellbent on shedding blood........another gun? Now the left wing might be confused by this elementary level of logic.......the REAL question is how long do you want said person to be unabated on his/her rampage. Considering that the 911 response time on the Sandy Hook call took 20-ish minutes......the only thing that could have potentially improved that outcome would have been an armed and trained teacher or hired guard on site. To deviate over to the hypothetical liberal mindset........Lanza COULD have killed just as many with a standard chef knife in those 20 minutes.

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has released a statement in response to California Senator Dianne Feinstein's new ban on semi-automatic rifles, pistols and handguns.

Washington politicians shouldn’t be taking advantage of recent tragedy to try to push an aggressive gun control agenda. Real assault weapons—machine guns—are already functionally illegal, and they have been since 1934. This proposal would have done nothing to prevent the terrible murders in Newtown, but it would limit the constitutional liberties of law-abiding citizens. And gun control doesn’t work – the empirical data overwhelmingly demonstrate that strict gun-control laws consistently produce more crime...
