Please explain to me why gun violence is so prevalent in America. I'd love to hear your rationale. The reason gun sales have spiked in the past week...are you kidding? Because these folks know serious and much needed gun control is going to be passed. Tell me...are you morons are OK with those innocents being killed? How do you sleep at night? Yep, more guns are the answer.

If only the first victim, Adam Lanza's mother, had been a gun owner, she could have stopped this before it started. Hope that logic and irony isn't lost on you nitwits. And what about my constitutional right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Don't I have a right to be safe? And how many guns do you need to feel safe anyway? One? Twenty? One hundred and twenty? You foolishly think because you have guns that you will be safe from the boogey man. Hardly. When was the last time a mass murderer was stopped by an armed individual? Do you want the entire citizenry to be armed? Is that the kind of country you want to live in? I don't...and it appears that most Americans don't want to lived in an armed encampment, either. Perhaps it's some kind of macho thing with you people. Real men don't need semi-automatic weapons to take down a deer. And if you do, that makes you kind of a p*ssy in my book.

Adam's mother was a stupid gun nut. And while I hate to speak ill of the dead, she had to have some kind of inkling that something was seriously wrong with her son. Anyone who has a mentally deranged child should have those guns under lock and key. Could it have been prevented? Hell yes!!!

When someone with a knife can take out 15 people in a dark movie theatre, or take our 26 innocents in an elementary school (in less than 5 minutes), then you morons might have a point. Otherwise, take note of the old saying: Better to stay quiet and let others think you are stupid, than to speak (or in this case, write..), and prove it.

Can't wait to see how those Republicans bought and paid for by the NRA react to this. This has been a very uncomfortable week for them. They seem to have slithered under their collective rocks. Guess their "guns at any cost" mentality with the murder of 26 innocents, including 20 children, was just a bit too much for even them to defend.

1. Abortion is a medical procedure. It is legal.2. Please find me where in the Bible (chapter/verse) that states contraception is against God's laws. 3. There is no militant agenda. You sound really paranoid. Live and let live buddy.4. It's called separation of church and state.

Oh please. Shame on the NRA while you're at it. And it's Mayor Bloomberg. I pray for the families and pray for some sanity to be restored in our country. Next week it might be YOUR or MY kid.... (By the way, those of you who are, like me, saddened and angered by this latest tragedy...take it upon ourselves to let our president, our senators, and our congressmen and women know how we feel about guns being in the hands of the criminally insane. We need to act NOW to DEMAND responsible gun ownership and the closing of loopholes, such as being able to purchase guns at gun shows, without background checks.) This morning, I don't know if more sad or more angry. What will it take for America to wake up? One hundred dead? One thousand?

Hey NRA...how do you like your country now?

To Mark Munroe: If you want to know what's wrong with the Republican Party, and why your party got so badly bruised during this election, please read the letter from Joseph K. Waltenbaugh above. It's the hate-filled, small-minded, vitriolic spew from nut jobs such as these that turn away the decent, hard-working middle class. If your party doesn't welcome pro-choice women, gays, and minorities, then I think you better get used to losing elections. By the way, Mr. Waltenbaugh's should read Bertram's recent editorial "Cry of the Angry White Man." He just might recognize himself!!!
