Gun control supporters have the blood of little children on their hands. Federal and state laws combined to insure that no teacher, no administrator, no adult had a gun at the Newtown school where the children were murdered. This tragedy underscores the urgency of getting rid of gun bans in school zones.

Wow. The ignorance is staggering. This is just the most illogical, irresponsible statement I’ve ever read. I wasn’t going to post anything about Newtown, but this is just. Wow. More guns are not the answer to too many guns. More access to mental health treatment is one answer. Making sure automatic weapons aren’t sold over the counter is another. Polarising rhetoric is not going to get us anywhere.
