SHOOTING: NRA, supporters are shooter’s accomplices

The National Rifle Association’s finger was on the trigger as those 20 children were murdered. Any politician who makes common cause with this evil organization should be voted out of office at the next election.

Not every mentally ill killer with a gun can be stopped, but we can outlaw guns made only to kill people. We can do background checks to see if a buyer is sane or not – or a terrorist. We can change this crass culture that teaches our children violence is an answer and acceptable.

Any American who supports the NRA or a politician endorsed by them is an accomplice to the kind of violence and horror we saw in Connecticut.
