I think it`s called free speech. The Constitution doesn`t begin and end with the 2nd amendment.

So we don't need gun laws?

I'm glad that Left-wingers agree that politicizing a mass shooting is in bad taste. Therefore I'm sure that the next tragedy will be free from Liberal anti-gun commentary and new restrictive gun-grabbing legislation, right?

Right?

I'm not a "left winger". I am a person who cannot understand why a civilian needs military style weapons, the kind used to slaughter defenseless little children in Newtown.

And then gun rights advocates decided that the anniversary of that tragedy is a good idea to have their Guns save lives day?

So tell me the difference between this and what the Westboro Church does at funerals?

I think that comment says it rather nicely!
I just said something similar on the thread about the Million Veterans March: Neither side of a political issue should be co-opting a grass-roots day for the people. Newtown should be able to grieve/memorialize in peace. It's their story, not the special interests'.

I'm sick to death of the common people being used as political pawns.

Agreed. It's not only "left-wingers" who find this offensive. My partner is Libertarian and he's disgusted by this. It's not your inner party that reacts to this sort of crap. It's your inner principles.
