To the Editor:
As a survivor of the Fort Hood massacre, it is apparent that the tragic events in Connecticut have led to the slaughter of innocents once again.
Regrettably, this occurred because there was no way to give immediate protective recourse with firearms against this kind of heinous criminal act.
Denying these men and women this protective ability is criminal and serves as definite proof that these loving teachers and other responsible adults should have been armed with the means to defend themselves and others.
We must embrace constitutional liberty and freedom and accountability in these matters.
In light of the politicization of this matter, we must deny the Obama adminsitration the opportunity to enact gun control under the premise of “never letting a bad crisis go to waste.”
