This was just sent to both my Senators, and my Congressperson:
"In the wake of today's events in Connecticut, the time for negotiation with gun-rights advocates is past. Dozens of people, including numerous children, now lie dead because of excessively lax firearm regulation in this country. Let them howl about freedom and civil liberties, and then remind them that the inalienable rights enshrined in our founding documents are "Life, Libery, and the Pursuit of Happiness," and today's shooting victims have been denied all of these.
Nobody's gun trumps anyone else's life. Ever."
