The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary has finally shaken up most of us to the realization of what our president simply stated: "We must change." So I am dumbfounded at the responses by some on both sides.
It is common sense to act now to stop the free flow of combat-style weapons in this country. Not for this generation; that genie is out of the bottle. Today's actions will not bear results for years.
But if we do not act now, the quantity and firepower of weaponry on our streets decades from now will surely make today's Bushmaster firearms look tame.
