While millions of American gun owners went about their lives as law-abiding citizens an evil plot was unfolding in Newtown, Conn., claiming the lives of innocent children and their teachers. To say that it's the fault of guns is just about as crazy. People kill people, not guns.
Semiautomatic small arms have been around for 100-plus years. So now there's another push to regulate gun owners when the real problem is the moral decline of our society. When we remove all vestiges of God from the public place, evil will fill the void.
