It is hypocritical for any politician from President Obama down to members of Congress to shed any tears over the tragic events in Newtown, Conn. The blood of innocent children is on the hands of those cowards that fear the NRA and on the hands of all of us who keep electing them.
I personally, in honor of their memories, pledge never ever again to vote for any politician, nor support any political party that refuses to strongly and effectively address the issue of gun control. There are no animals to hunt in this country where these powerful arms would be necessary.
On the other side of the fiscal cliff lies a moral abyss.
