The present gun control changes before Congress to prevent gun violence do not include assault weapons and other items vital to stop senseless gun violence. The reasons vary. I have spoken to a local person who is also opposed to any gun control. Apparently, this person would rather continue to see the slaughter in our streets, our classrooms, and in our homes.

With the pending descent into anarchy here in the US, per Mr Barzetti’s letter in the 3/22 Bee [“Financial Collapse Is Near”], I would suggest he take his money from under the mattress and move to a country that is more politically and economically stable.
Some writers devote a lifetime to creating the perfect opus, agonizing over every word, crafting each phrase, and breathing life into characters. Yet that pinnacle of achievement remains elusive.

Furthermore, advertising in this manner perpetuates grief among survivors and invites copy cats. Accessories?
As heavy afternoon rush-period traffic whizzed by on March 14, a local couple stood in front of the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF) office building at 11 Mile Hill Road holding signs of protest.
A sign held by Andrew Morosky charged that NSSF, as a firearms industry lobby group, profited from the December 14 Sandy Hook School shooting tragedy.
The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission ignored the politics cramping gun-control legislation now under negotiation and issued an interim report Monday recommending broad restrictions on the sale and possession of semiautomatic firearms and ammunition in Connecticut.
