The travesty that occured at Sandy Hook Elementary School was sad enough to begin with, which is why respectful people have waited to start commenting. The shooting should be a message for everybody. Sadly, some people have been making this message out to be that we need more gun control that cannot be farther from the truth. We actually need less control to stop these kinds of things happening. Schools are great targets for shooters because they have signs that say that you cannot have a concealed weapon on the school property, but do you really think that a criminal who's going to go and kill innocent children is going to pay attention to a little sign on the door? No of course not! So why have the signs? To make people feel safer that's the only reason to have them. They do nothing to make us safer, all they do is take away weapons from someone who could actually save innocent lives. If you really want to protect our children, you should join me in the fight to allow people with concealed carry permits to carry their weapons into public buildings. That is the only way to stop the mass shootings. We are trying to blame the guns and the mother and the NRA for the shooting, when the person too blame is Adam Lanza. He murdered the kids and there is no way on Earth it could be anyone else's fault. The guns didn't tell him to shoot the children, the NRA didn't force him to do it. He made the choice to murder innocent people. If you have to place blame on someone else, place it on the government. Parents are forced to send their children to an institution ran by the government where good law abiding citizens can't carry weapons for self defense. People planning on using a weapon for harm aren't going to obey rules of not bringing weapons on a school campus. The only way to stop these shootings is to shoot the shooters as soon as they raise their weapon to kill. Believe it or not, that is actually a deterrent as well as a method of stopping that specific person. If we outlaw guns, criminals will still get access to them, the only change will be that good people won't be able to defend themselves. Even if they can't get guns, they can kill with a knife, a rope, a sword, or their bare hands. Gun control helps no one except criminals. That is what we should learn from this shooting in a state with more gun control than most others and in a building where weapons are not allowed. Think about why politicians want this. They either don't understand basic life processes, or they want to disarm America. If they did that, the government could do what they want to, without fear. If they want to take your property, they can, what could you do to stop them? When a country disarms its citizens, votes no longer count, elections are no longer required. The government has no fear of a revolution. Any protesters can be shot and killed. No one will retaliate when they have no weapons to fight with. Especially when their opponents have unlimited weapons and ammunition. An assault weapons ban is in our future if we don't speak up. We have to be able to keep our weapons to keep ourselves safe from other people and the government. Remember this every time you hear talk of more gun control. Remember that tyranny and murder comes after gun control, not safety and peace.
