New Town, Old Story

December 14th, 2012

28 people are dead after a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT this morning, including 20 small children.

 

 

I just can’t stand

Attempts to “understand.”

 

Sure, the details are still a little hazy,

And sure, the shooter was crazy.

 

But that isn’t what enabled him to kill 20 kids–

His easy access to weapons did.

 

This should never have happened, yet it happens again and again–

Can we PLEASE do something to keep it from happening again.

 

We need to do more than crying

And stop more people from dying.

Here’s MSNBC’s report, followed by Martin Bashir’s panel discussion. Julian Epstein makes some excellent points.
