    Make note of these names folks. These are the people who have no concern for the freedoms offered in our Constitution; have no regard for honest and open discussion; have no shame by parading the victims of this tragedy like a circus through the town; and have no problem dealing not with facts and the truth, but rather from a knee-jerk, emotional level.

    These are the kinds of people we want running this country, right?

    This Newtown massacre was a terrible horrendous tragedy no one is denieing that but this is all these politicians seem to be focused on lately is gun control. Look at the presidents state of the union, the whole audience is people who been affected by gun violence. Maybe the audience should also include some of people who have been effected by bad political decisions that have worsened our economy for those who have lost their homes and jobs. I guess that isnt a good photo op. I think the senators and congressman should also maybe spend some of their time working on our dismal economy here in Connecticut. All these politicians seem to care about is gun control now. I know this gun control gets these politicians more media time and their pictures in the paper but we really need them to work on our economy before it collapses and to work on creating “Good Jobs” for people who are unemployed. Its time these senators and congressmen stop show boating and start earning the nice salaries and amazing benefits our tax dollars provide them.

      more people are protected every year by legal, responsible gun ownership, than are killed by guns. These are FBI statistics. No one mentions this. Why not?
