AN AK-47 assault weapon’s sole purpose is to leave no survivors. It did its job very well in Sandy Hook. Do you want this future?

THE U.S. HAS 5 percent of the world’s population and 50 percent of the world’s guns. Is there something wrong with this picture?

JUST TO EVEN the playing field, let’s arm everyone except lawyers!

A READER ASKS “What would Jesus do?” about governmental programs. Shouldn’t Jesus have no business in state policies? Remember, church and state are separate.

FLEISCHMANN VOTED to cut food stamps and the child tax credit and to increase defense spending. What a jerk.

REPUBLICANS WANT middle-income seniors to pay more but will take us over the fiscal cliff to keep the wealthy from paying more.

WHY TO BUSINESSES insist on employees answering the phones with too much information? We will tell you how you can help us.

FAST-FOOD restaurants (and others): Times are tough, but you need to hire someone to clean tables between customers.

STOP THE SPENDING cuts, don’t raise taxes and what do you have left? Obama’s trillion-dollar deficits!

MY CHRISTMAS tree lights burn bright — worked and now retired. And, needed no help from the hypocrites.

I’LL BE GLAD when the Rapture comes ... got bills due.

NOPE! Sorry, all honor intended, but, it is my lawful right as a United States Citizen to have an AK-47 as a Collector's Item. Some people collect weird ancient fossils, I collect guns. Any questions? kwo

Wrong... An AK-47 wasn't used in the Sandy Hook shooting. The rifle was a Bushmaster AR-15, and it was left in the car during the shooting. The responders on the scene only removed the rifle from the trunk of the car after dark.

You know this is what gives guns a bad name. A so called assault weapon was not used at all. This moron used pistols. If there had been an armed guard at the school he may have been shot before he had a chance to kill anyone.

Not that it really matters considering the outcome, but Mr. Lanza did indeed use the rifle. The point, however, is not the weapon he used, but the act he committed and the reasons for it. Those reasons are what needs to be addressed.

That was a very early report. What you're seeing is the effect of the 24 hr news cycle and rabid desire of every network and talking head to be there first with the most. Try this later report: (from CNN only marginally more reliable than MSNBC which mostly isn't)
