My Thoughts: Newtown Tragedy

I was deeply saddened and heartbroken, while browsing through the pictures of extremely beautiful children & courageous teachers killed in the Sandy Hook School massacre on CNN. My heart goes to the families of those who lost their lives and to the whole community affected by this despicable act of evil.

It is beyond my comprehension why people are allowed to buy automatic assault rifles with such ease.

The shooter was better armed than soldiers for most professional armies.

When the 2nd Amendment was passed, they had guns that only had one shot before they had to be reloaded. That was the time when they had no standing army and needed reserve forces just in case they were needed to defend their country.

Today, USA has the best military the history has ever witnessed.

I see absolutely no reason, whatsoever why a civilian should be in possession of fully automatic weapons.

It is time to rethink.
