I would hope that we can balance public safety with personal rights. I have read that experts show that if the insurance industry for life, health, home, and business, made gun safety a risk that higher insurance rates could be charged. I believe that we all have a right to public safety and since the shootings at New Town we need to change the gun laws. Nobody is talking about a rifle safely stored for home protection. What we need to prevent irresponsible gun ownership.
I keep thinking of this one brave school teacher who sat in a locked bathroom with 15 first-graders all believing that they would soon die. As the terrifying sound of 100s of bullets was loud in the background killing their classmates and other educators, she in a hushed whisper spoke of how much she loved them, so that was the last thing they heard, instead of the bullets before they died. email@example.com
