See what guns do to the bodies of innocent children, teachers, psychologists and school administrators.

A picture named bushmaster.gifAccording to this NYT piece, Newtown had a problem with guns before the tragedy. It would be interesting to see if they have any will to do anything about it, now that they have the first-hand experience of a nightmare of guns-gone-wild.

Also there’s a question whether the Sandy Hook school will re-open. Maybe it shouldn’t. Maybe it should be turned into the National Gun Tragedy Museum. Re-create the horror scene, with dummies, fake blood, scattered body parts. Including the gunman. Everyone can come for a visit to see what guns do to the bodies of innocent school children, teachers, psychologists and school administrators.

Did anyone else notice that all the victims were women and children. What does that say about the honor of this country? (I’m sure they must have talked about that on TV, I have been avoiding the news the last few days, for the most part.)

  • Another thing I noticed that has nothing to do with this idea is that the school was named Sandy. What is going on here. Who is Sandy and why is he or she screwing around with the northeastern United States?

Maybe the thing to do is to confront the problem we have, whatever it is (no one knows, imho) and look at it straight-on. Instead of sweeping our feelings aside until the next horror comes along.

Now, it’s not my town, so it’s not for me to say. But I don’t think new laws will stop the escalating tragedies. They are getting worse. I don’t want to enumerate the ways, but they are growing more frequent and more horrible.
