Gun Madness is sweeping this country. Twenty six people dead, most of them children, at an elementary school and our societal reaction to this horrific tragedy is to pass more conceal and carry laws. Those of us who do not feel that it is necessary to go shopping carrying a gun are no longer safe at stores like Nebraska Furniture Mart, a store that welcomes shoppers who carry guns. We as a nation have not taken to the streets to protest this madness; instead we sit passively by while the NRA bullies win victory after victory in statehouses across the country.

I don’t think the Founding Fathers wanted us to value our guns more than our children.
