Which shooting was that? The murderer in Newtown last week killed 20
children, and six
adults, according to news reports. Yes, facts matter.
And to your other point, I have been able to hold rational conversations with people, who are upset and opposed to gun ownership, about the CT shooting. There's still much shock and grief right now, and it takes calm assurance to speak of constitutional rights and the ineffectiveness of previous gun and accessory bans. We need something better than what Lanza's mother provided, to care for those with mental illness and violent tendencies.
