As people across the country talk about tightening gun control legislation in the aftermath of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., we asked local residents to share their thoughts:
Here’s what a Bradenton Patch Facebook fan had to say:
Does anyone see a connection between attempting to remove God and freedom from our lives with the incidence of nut cases rampaging with weapons? Instead of shouting about guns and the legality of such how about trying to find the reason the insane folks who perpetrate Newtown,CT type massacres are running free and are able to commit such deeds. Only one who is totally insane could kill children. SOMEONE had to realize this kid wasn't right in the head.....
