It's the right response

“It’s the wrong response to incidents like Newtown.” [Teaser to the article]

This statement has no real basis in fact. We don’t go into any area of conflict without an equal amount of armament. You can go to many places where there are armed guards—football games, and many others. I would like to think that is just another tool that should be used to curb violence.

Someone sitting behind a desk, in some rather obscure location who makes this kind of statement should volunteer to be the next victim and then maybe they would have a different reference. There is no one answer, but there are several answers that would likely slow down the number of killings.
