What happened today in Connecticut is almost incomprehensible. How do you look into the eyes of a child and then blow them away? We can only imagine what goes thru the mind of someone so intent on causing harm.
But the harm was the result of a very disturbed human being. He would have found another way had he not had access to a gun.
In President Obama’s comments he named many of the recent mass shootings and said we need to take the politics out of a solution. In other words, this would not have happened if we had gun control.
I am not a gun nut, but I do believe strongly in the Second Amendment. That being said, this is not a “gun” issue but a “lack of morality” issue and a “lack of dealing with mental health” issue.
At this point we do not know what was going on in this man’s mind, but clearly someone who is not feeling at the end of his rope or is so full of anger about his circumstances or perceived circumstances would do such a thing. It is bad enough he killed his parents, but 20 innocent children is beyond belief.
As a nation we need to wake up and admit the root causes of such tragedies . . . and DEAL WITH THEM. But then we might offend someone and that would be tragic.
