How does one react to the tragedy that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday?
It didnâ€™t take long for the anti-gun lobby to jump to the conclusion that the massacre of 20 young children and six women members of the faculty and staff at the Sandy Hook Elementary School illustrates the need for stricter controls on guns. In fact, one congressman issued a press release within an hour of the announcement of the event, literally before any facts were known. Perhaps he has a press release prepared â€śjust in caseâ€ť.
