Well done, Mark. Heartfelt! The liberals seem to forget that conservatives (gun owners) also felt a sense of shock and horror on Dec. 14, 2012. It was a sad day in American history. Only one thing could have prevented the Newtown slaughter and that would have been to arm teachers. They are the last line of defense. If you cannot or will not protect the children by arming teachers, then I'm afraid more such slaughters will occur again. As will this debate.
