Seek solutions with wisdom, not shallow emotionalism
America mourns the deaths of those who lost their lives in Connecticut. The children, the most innocent of the innocent, bring this atrocity to levels beyond comprehension. While we pray for the victims and attempt to comprehend why this happened, we must also work to find sensible solutions to see that it doesn't happen again.

From this tragedy, gun control advocates have again offered only ideas of superficial emotionalism, which would further endanger innocent people to the mercyof an always well-armed criminal element. The foundation of the problem isn't guns. In Oklahoma, the Murrah building attacked was with a truck bomb. On Sept. 11, 2001, the most powerful nation in the history of mankind was held hostage by a handful of terrorists. Armed only with box knives, they murdered thousands of innocent people.And while we appreciate the efforts and the sacrifices of our law enforcement community, we understand that when you're seconds awas from death, the police are minutes away from you.
During this time of tragedy, we ask our leaders to seek solutions with wisdom and common sense, not with shallow emotionalism.
