Yesterday in Newtown, Connecticut, the Monster came right into the school where our children were supposed to be safe; right into the place where their protectors were with them.
None of these protectors were able to do anyting to stop this Monster from slaughtering the children; the protectors; and then escaping into death without so much as an explanation; and without having to pay for his heartless destruction of truly innocent lives.
The school principal tried and was shot down. Teachers tried and were killed though the actions of these teachers saved lives that otherwise would have been lost. The Monster could not be stopped because he was carrying three (3) weapons; one of which was an assault rifle that is capable of firing so fast and so long that no-one could have gotten close to reaching the shooter before being killed themselves. His fourth weapon; also an asaault weapon was a Russian Saiga semi-automatic shotgun designed for close action in cramped areas and capable of carring a drum magazine for extended use.
Our sadness and sense of frustration knows no bounds and will respond to no balm.
My friend over at 3chicspolitico have had to stop reblogs for the time being but I am providing a link to their site. Look at the pictures of these kids and then tell me that we don’t need to place some controls on the unlimited power to kill.
