Mayor Bloomberg is a crass and insensitive jerk, to say nothing of his totalitarian tendencies which manifest in his ceaseless calls for gun control. Only a heartless jerk turns such an atrocity for political purposes before the dead are even buried. ONly a would-be tyrant suggests that guns themselves kill, when anyone with sense knows that guns are only tools of those who would do violence. In fact, a very good case can made that - had there been one person in that hapless school qualifed in the use of a concealed firearm and licensed to carry it - that the death toll might have been far lower. Why so many school shootings? Because would-be killers know they are "gun-free" zones and thus soft targets.
