43. Anyone would be appalled, but I believe parents are especially

overwhelmed, as you say. I sure was. There have been a few "oh god" moments as we waited to hear about our kids' safety as they grew up, but nothing like this. I saw the the lingering emptiness and hidden pain of loosing a child in my parents...
I pray we never have to find out for ourselves.


P.S. Your postings of toons really really do fill a deep need for understanding events from cartoonists' unique perspective. Thanks for your efforts, as always.

63. Would it make any difference with most of them?

I'm sorry I sound so cynical. And I would hope that the slaughter of 20 kids and 6 adults would finally be the tipping point in the gun debate. But I think we all know what their rebuttal is: Guns don't kill guns, people do; if only someone there in the school had a gun; etc., etc., etc. They are so brainwashed by their own obsession with weapons that I doubt anything will penetrate that sickness.

54. powerful and heartbreaking. We're not talking about guns here

we're talking about weapons of mass destruction. Weapons capable of firing 100 rounds in just a few minutes. Weapons that don't belong in civilian society or in the hands of civilians. These weapons must be banned, illegal to own or purchase by the civilian population. If we don't start controlling weapons, everyone might just as well own a nuclear bomb. After all bombs don't kill people...........

So, really, your supposed RIGHT to own and use a gun any old way you want, when you want, and on whom you want, trumps the LIFE, LIBERTY AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS of a 6 year old?
