What happened in Connecticut last Friday was terrible. But what happened was not a societal problem; it's a moral problem. In today's society no one is taught morals. What was moral 40 years ago is condoned to be legal today by voters, legislators and our courts.

The socialists of this country are going to ask for more gun control. Little children in schools are most vulnerable and they're in gun-free zones, but that doesn't stop the bad guys from doing what they do. They don't care about the law. They're going to do whatever they want, law or no law. These children and their teachers can't defend themselves. Gun-free zones are OK for law-abiding citizens, but your average bad guy doesn't care.

The whole thing in a nutshell is that laws won't stop the bad guys intent on doing harm to someone.

Schools should immediately develop a program where every teacher is trained in how to handle a firearm. All teachers must comply to get hired.

Signs should be posted around the school that read: "The teachers and administrators of this school are armed and trained in deadly force. Anybody attempting to enter the school intending to do harm will be shot on sight."

What should be done to the persons who do these terrible crimes? They should be executed. Their mental state before or after the shooting is irrelevant. They should be dead. Let's stop blaming the law-abiding citizens and start going after the criminals.
