anything. To this day, the hardest thing was telling my other 2 children that their little brother was about to die (we had to unplug him from life support). I, unfortunately, can imagine what the families were going through, pure, unadulterated, grief and anger so deep that they feel they will never be able to go on. Hey NRA members, is this what you want? Unfortunately, they do not recognize, or refuse to recognize, the truth! They make excuses, blame others, but refuse to look in the mirror. I wonder if their were any NRA die hard members who's children were killed? I bet they get it now. It seems it has to happen to them before they see the other side of this issue. What a shame!
