Pick of the day: What will it take to end gun violence?
Twenty little children were murdered in a school in Connecticut. Others died with them.
The National Rifle Association, through years of political intimidation, has made such massacres inevitable. We need politicians with the simple decency to vote to stop the NRA from blocking all control of who can own guns.
Video the crime scene before it is cleaned up. Record all the bodies in all the coffins and all the cries of all the people who lost children and other loved ones in the slaughter.
Make every legislator and all employees of the NRA watch what happened and hear the hurt that is left behind. Treat them like the people in German villages who were made to walk though liberated concentration camps and then bury the bodies so they would understand what they had allowed.
Don’t let anyone who could help solve the problem pretend they are not responsible. Demand that politicians control who can get weapons.
If this massacre doesn’t move people to act, what will?
If now is not the time, when will it be?
What does it take?
