The politicos in D.C. and the states are not working on ongoing problems that are killing a lot of young people — gangs. The big to-do is over assault weapons. I feel very sorry as others do about the school shooting in Connecticut.
The rifle used was an AR-15. The AR stands for ArmaLite Co, which designed it. All the weapons used in the shootings at Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, Wisconsin and Connecticut were standard firearms purchased legally. The tragedy sets up the politicos to pass laws. We need to find the why it happened. I do not know why, but it is people using guns that kill people. Fix the people problem somehow.
