So says Jonathan L. Loftus, writing from Boston
[Writers Clearinghouse News Service}
Like so many people, I am sad and furious about the Connecticut school massacre. President Obama should have the balls to go on national TV and publicly name the National Rifle Association (NRA) as an unindicted co-conspirator. Name names-the top people there, as well as all politicians -- Democrats as well as Republicans -- who receive support from them ($$$$$). And "call them out" for bending over for this evil organization.
The next thing the President needs to do is lead the charge to abolish the Second Amendment. The U.S. Constitution was completed in 1791, and the right to bear arms is no longer needed. In fact, does more harm than good. I would go further and propose a very punitive law: possession of a firearm would land you in jail for a year for the first offense and life imprisonment,no parole, for the second offense.
As long as guns are so readily available, we will continue to see these mass shootings at malls, schools, the workplace and on the streets. It's time to put an end to this madness.
