Sandy Hook Remembered

The Boston Massacre diverted attention from the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre and butchery by Bushmaster. New regulations were discussed & rejected last week in the US Congress. Weren't non-politicized countermeasures possible? By requiring 60 supporting votes (of 100 Senators), this was clear political posturing. A simple majority could have made law.

There is a deeper problem: many American's don't trust their government, they don't trust their neighbors. Too many people feel exposed, vulnerable and under attack.

America's political leaders show most concern for their own jobs. This translates to "you're on your own" for normal people. It's no wonder guns are considered a necessity. But too many people are killed needlessly and foolishly - especially kids.
