    Sandy Hook: The more I reflect, the more questions I have

    As I reflect on the tragedy that unfounded on that horrible day, the more questions I have. We were witness to one of the most horrible things that could happen to any parent, or friend of a loved one. Yet, in any tragedy, there are always questions to be raised and asked.

    We were privileged to see groups of people with their agendas to come out of their caves and begin spewing their non-sense. We saw the anti-2nd Amendment crowd, we saw the conspiracy theory crowd, we saw the legislative crowed that wants you disarmed and only law enforcement and the military armed. Then finally you have the other crowd, the crowd that asks questions. The uncomfortable questions in order to formulate a proper conclusion based on the facts; this is the crowd I am a part of. Yet, asking questions will get you labeled as not going along with the program.

    It is rather interesting, that while we are quick to blame the firearm used, we are never quick to blame the shooter. Why is it that when a suicide bomber detonates his ordinances or bombs, we are very keen on blaming the suicide bomber, his ideology and the group he's affiliated with but we're quite satisfied in blaming the ordinances or bomb that exploded or that was used. Suddenly than when you ask why don't blame the bomb, people are staring down at the floor. Why?
