Good Guys With Guns Matter!

In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Florida, I hope a respectful initial mourning period has passed, allowing for commentary. For those directly affected, in some ways that mourning period will never end completely. But, as sad as I am for the victims, their families and friends, and all Americans who weep with and for them, I noticed it didn’t take long for some politicians to inject politics into yet another national argument about guns.

One Democrat, a Connecticut senator, couldn’t wait to exploit the situation during a speech on the Senate floor. He railed against his political opponents while shooting victims were still being recovered, treated, and transported to hospitals. Never let a crisis go to waste, right?
