“How many have to die before we will give up these dangerous toys?” ~Stephen King, Guns
You must watch this incredible testimony from the father of one of the children killed in Sandy Hook. I wish he could have been at the Senate hearings to throw this in Wayne LaPierre's face.
“I do not think the composition of that foundational phrase [life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness] was an accident,” he said. “I do not think the order of those important words was haphazard or casual. The liberty of any person to own a military-style assault weapon and a high-capacity magazine and keep them in their home is second to the right of my son to his life.”
Of course, this is not the position of the NRA, where the Second Amendment outweighs everything else, even the Constitution itself.
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Bottom line: My life is more important than your gun. Period.
