Derek Hunter accuses other journalists of lying about the killer's use of an assault weapon in the slaying of these children - when that's precisely what happened: NEWTOWN, Conn.

That is why stricter gun law states tend to have more gun crimes.

But stupid folks refuse to see it.

I’ll leave it to others better suited to comment on the horror of Friday afternoon in Newtown, Conn. I am not yet a parent and would not presume to understand the emotions involved in something like this.

But on the media reaction and exploitation that followed the horrific news, I will comment.

Simply put, it was disgusting.

I’ve said before how progressives will exploit anyone and anything to advance their agenda, but I’d always thought there was a line, somewhere, of decency they wouldn’t cross. I was wrong.

With the blood of the victims still wet, progressives began...
