In your Jan. 16 edition, you showed a picture of a 6-year-old girl from Colorado holding a sign that read, “I Heart the 2nd Amendment.” I wonder, if she had been one of the beautiful, innocent children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, would her parents have that statement engraved on her tombstone?

And why was a state senator so against having all firearms registered? If the gun owners are not criminals, it should not be a problem. I can’t help but wonder how people would be reacting if it had been their child slain so horribly.
