There are many voices giving their assessments and their answers to the tragedy that occured last week in Newtown CT. Here is a collection of a few of them in no particular order.

What else can we say about the murder of children and their teachers? How can we understand the evil of killing little children one by one, forcing them to watch their little friends die and realizing that they were to be next? How can we bear this?

Must every tragic mass shooting bring out the shrill ignorance of "gun control" advocates?
By Dennis Prager
Want to know a major cause of criminal violence in America? Try leftism's denial of the importance of moral values among nations and individuals; its systematic destruction of character education; and its elimination of God as the source of moral law.

So elementary schools are full of young children and unarmed women. While there are notable exceptions (ex military, law enforcement, firearms enthusiasts, martial arts hobbyists, etc.) most women have relatively little physical strength, are smaller than most adult males and have little or no capability to exercise unarmed self defense.

Guns don't kill people. Amoral-education does.
By Jacob Hornberger
Second, gun-control laws won't eliminate guns from society, any more than drug laws have eliminated drugs from society. Given the millions of guns in existence, along with continued manufacture of guns all over the world, all that gun control would do is convert the business of owning guns into a black-market enterprise. That means gun gangs, gun cartels, robberies, muggings, and all the other things that come into existence with a black market. If you like the war on drugs, you'll love the war on guns.

But I do not remember ever hearing of a mass murder except gangster mass murders in history books or movies during Prohibition. It had nothing to do with a lack of guns. Guns were everywhere.
