and you saw their body dismembered, would your view on gun control be different? In the Sandy Hook massacre, the first shot to the last shot took less than 5 minutes. 152 bullets 30 round magazine 4 times.
If Adam Lanza had only 10 round magazine available to him, he would have had to load 14 times. Its very possible more children would be alive today. We the people have had ENOUGH!

It's hard to say what I would feel if my child were murdered. However, after grieving for a period of time and getting past the worst part of my loss and learning to live my days without my child in my life I would have to look hard at my own motives for wanting what I want. While I understand that many people find guns threatening and scary, I also know that when shit goes bad I call a number where they send men and women equipped with GUNS to either protect or serve me. I can rationally look around and see that there are many crimes committed with firearms that were obtained illegally, which gun 'control' will not fix. I think eventually I would come to the conclusion that the only way to prevent future situations like these is to examine the part mental illness plays and figure out what can be done to not only protect society, but also honor individual's rights (even the mentally ill).

BTW, idiocy would be creating and passing policy based on emotion instead of rational thought. Feel good policy is just there to make you feel good, it doesn't actually address real problems. So when it happens again, what will you want to ban then? What will you blame for the loss of life? How will you address the root cause? Or will you just keep going off of emotion?
