Connecticut School Tragedy: Stop Handguns Before They Stop You!!

For the same total population, that’s still 10,400 more. CQFD: guns kill. Ban them. We need to create more awareness about weapons – the discussion in America comes and goes, but never sustains itself in a real way that provokes change. Safety.





















The world’s response to this is no different than conversations I’ve had with people from other countries for YEARS. The outside world suggests pushing for stronger gun control laws. Twitter users and media personalities in the U.K. immediately invoked Dunblane – a 1996 shooting in that small Scottish town which killed 16 children. For example, that tragedy prompted a campaign that ultimately led to tighter gun controls effectively making it illegal to buy or possess a handgun in the U.K.

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard called Friday’s attack at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, a “senseless and incomprehensible act of evil.” Media power Rupert Murdoch calling the shootings “terrible news” asking “when will politicians find courage to ban automatic weapons?

A mass shooting in a Connecticut suburb school is worst than the mass shooting in the Colorado theatre – its the one place parents think their kids are safe. The mass shooting in Connecticut left 28 people dead, including 20 children. The gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, killed his mother at their home Friday before beginning his deadly rampage inside the school in Newtown, then committed suicide, police said.

Stop Handguns before they stop you!
