The NRA's "solution" to Newtown is more guns. This is so pathetic it makes me ill. What if the next shooter armed with an assault weapon and/or high capacity clip decides to target a shopping mall, fireworks display, art fair or public library?
The idea that gun violence can be stopped by keeping the mentally ill from obtaining weapons is equally ridiculous. As was the case in Newtown, what will stop a mentally ill person from taking his parents guns. Or stealing them from friends or others.

As long as these types of weapons are available to the public we are all in danger.If Congress had not let the assault weapon ban lapse, would those children in Connecticut still be alive?
