1. The CT guy violated already exisitng Federal law by bring a gun to the school.
2. The CT guy violated already exisiting state law(s) by bringing a gun to the school.
3. The CT guy obtained the guns illegally after committing murder and before violating numbers 1 and 2 above.
4. Who knows how many other Federal and state laws were violated in the commision of this terrible deed?
What law(s) can anyone create that will honestly stop an insane criminal from committing an act like that without infringing upon the rights of the overwhelming vast majority of already law-abiding citizens of this country?
I dare say none.

Horsefeathers.........I say..........secure these defenseless places with trained LE.....and be done with it.
I agree that the Government is going to do "something" (either by law or executive order) to try and assauge the public & media outcry. The most likely candidate (IMHO) is some form of "assault weapon" restriction and/or ban.
I'm heading off to a gun show in Raleigh to oggle (and maybe drool) at some of the demon weapons.
Well I guess this could go on for decades (as it already has)...there seem to be some who are opposed to anything being done, and some who think nothing is going to be done and that's fine...Stand by your belief's and convictions...I believe something will be done and I will take precautions necessary..but whatever happens don't say I did not tell you so.
It is against all the laws and morality of mankind to commit mass murder--but then you have the like of Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot comes along anyhow. Those of that mentality cannot be regulated out of existance, regardless of the scale of their offences.
rode the subway system and walked to and from home or school or work at all hours of the night or early to late A.M. My travels usually took 45 minutes to an hour and often included one or two
transfers between the various lines. I'm still here. And that was before they deployed transit police.
Nor did I start or stop in the nicer (were there such?) places.
I don't think we need more gun control, but I bet if we paint the barrels pink, insist on wooden stocks decorated
with rainbows and smiley faces, and generally make the objects as unlike a phallic symbol as possible, there would be
fewer young male lunatics daydreaming and drooling over guns.
Sometimes its the little things that count. Forget functionality and magazine size. Make 'em look feminizing.
[The ladies get to keep their black rifles and blue steel pistols since apparently even the psychotic amongst them don't engage in mass murder. ]
