The killings that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut over the weekend were disgraceful. This is a simple fact that people on both sides of the gun debate would agree on. Over the past few days though as the remorse turns to anger we are seeing more and more people turn their attention to the gun laws in America and her desire to ensure that the sanctity of the 2nd Amendment is preserved. People immediately look at gun laws whenever horrific events like this take place which is unfortunate. Situations like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting do not take place because of America’s gun laws and in my view moving the debate immediately to the 2nd Amendment means that the real issues at play do not get discussed.
