I cried today as I heard about the shooting in Connecticut. Then I was angry. This country has not learned a thing. Banning guns at schools is the dumbest idea ever! No law-abiding citizen killed anyone with a gun. I do believe Columbine and Virginia Tech would have been either prevented or less tragic had guns been allowed. You’re an adult at 18. You can die for your country, but you cannot drink or buy a pistol.

No decision is ever perfect but had there been armed adults today, 20 little children may still be alive. Had I been there at least some of them definitely would have been. We must remove the ban on guns in school zones. My daughter’s life may depend on it.
