    Flags Half Mast on Andrews Air Force Base

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ryn told me, 'This is a horrific and needless tragedy. There are no words we can offer to the families and loved ones of the victims. I am all for reformed gun laws, much higher standards in back grounds checks, especially for the mentally ill.' She told us her story regarding firearms in 2009.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Up on entering the main gate of Andrews Air Force Base, outside Washington DC, the flag display was presented at half mast, in remembrance of the victims of Newtown, Connecticut. Over the base American flags were half mast as well. A sobering and thought provoking symbol of this unspeakable tragedy.
