My heart goes out to all who were touched by what took place in Newtown, Conn., but let me remind you the carnage was done by a mentally diseased madman inspired by computer games supplied to him by his mother, whom he murdered, the same person who introduced his sick mind to firearms.

The number a recent letter writer quoted is not information from the NRA — 8 percent, not 80, are in favor of such legislation. The great Obama, Biden, Clinton, Pelosi propaganda machine is the source to help demonize all legitimate firearms owners.

And lastly if I poked you in the eye with a Bic pen, it then becomes an assault weapon. Strange? But with proper legislation that could stop all letters to the editor and help erase the First Amendment.
