28. It's just heartbreaking. I don't know what hurts more -

thinking of what that man went through - and so close to Christmas - OR the just plain shitty reaction from the gun nut contingent who insist on the right to massacre. That's all it is when you're talking assault rifles, weapons that can mow a multitude of people down in the span of a mere minute. That's a massacre. No one's trying to take single-shot weapons away. Nobody's trying to take anyone's rifle away, or handgun of any kind. If what these people are insisting on is wanton access to assault weapons, then what they're advocating the right to massacre. Someone took me to task on it here recently, and I just wasn't in the mood to argue. Nevertheless I stand by that wording.
