What happened negates that tired old adage from the gun lobby “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”
Which means it’s easy to blame the shooter. Which is the standard operational response for tragedies like this. But these shootings still keep happening.
Guns kill. That’s what they are designed to do. How can anyone give succour and comfort to the victims by saying “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people”?
Like President Obama, I’m a parent too and simply see no point to this. And in a few weeks or months, what is the point that once the victims are buried that this is forgotten?
Should these children and teachers have died in vain?
Why should this happen again and again? This time no more.
Sign the petition and save lives. Time to ban weapons of mass destruction everywhere!
