Sandy Hook was three years ago today

And what has changed in the US in that time?


In fact, it is probably easier to get firearms in the United States now than it was three years ago.

After Sandy Hook, I gave up hope that Americans will ever change. If the deaths of twenty small children cannot do that, nothing will.

Here are those twenty children, and the six adults who died with them.

    How maddening (sad,disgusting , ad your adjective here) for everyone but especially the familes of all those chikdren and teachers….

    Stolen from Matty Ice on twitter: 3 years since #SandyHook and the families impacted by the gun massacre should feel comfort that Republicans are still praying for them.

  3. Peter says:

    I neither admire nor envy their attitude to guns, but what is it that makes Canadians so emotionally invested in this issue? Lots of countries (many with very strict gun control laws) have much higher gun homicide rates and there have been quite a few school shootings elsewhere, but when it happens in the States it’s as if the border has disappeared. Is it because we see them as family or look to them for moral and political leadership? Are we afraid they will contaminate us?

  4. Matt says:

    Not sure there is evidence to say it has become easier to get a gun since Sandy Hook, but I think you can say it really hasn’t gotten any harder to get a gun.

  5. Jack D says:

    So sad, so heart wrenching.

    And to think that if only these kids had been armed themselves, they could’ve saved their own lives.

    I think this is a very hard choice, but the price — we think the price is worth it. Madeleine Albright
