Do not expect much of a post from me about the shooting at the school in Newtown, CT last Friday; I, for one, do not believe in using the blood of victims as a fuel to further my political goals, unlike your average "gun control" fetishist. My thoughts and prayers are unquestionably with the families of those killed in this horrific crime, though, and if you do want something to read, you should read this. [...]

And that is, unfortunately, the God’s Honest Truth. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership cannot point to a single instance where any of the laws they have supported or do support have saved a single person’s life; however, there is one repeated, consistent theme in almost every major spree shooting in recent history: armed resistance has stopped the [...]
Dragon brings up an interesting point regarding the recent Long Island pharmacy murders:
