A movie theater... A shopping mall... And now an elementary school. I feel like no place is safe anymore!

No place is safe Vanzetta. You have to be prepared for it to happen anywhere. Movie theaters...bad, shopping mall...bad...but kids in an elementary school...just sickening.

It is my understanding that 47% of people who buy guns are never given a background check. We need sensible gun control and the NRA needs to step aside or take the lead in this effort along with all of the gun manufactures.
