Question of the Day: What Happens After the Next Newtown?

At a recent Connecticut pre-gun ban bill public hearing, Marine Derek Greaves warned the state legislators “this will happen again.” There will be another spree killing like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut. Chances are it won’t be exactly the same. It’s hard to imagine another slaughter that takes the lives of 20 children. But not impossible. For those who cherish their Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, that’s a worst case scenario: another spree killer (or killers) armed with an “assault rifle” attacks defenseless children. What if that happens today? Or sometime before Senator Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 bill hits the skids? Firearms freedom is under the gun like never before. It could get worse. Not to put too fine a point on it, could gun rights survive another Sandy Hook?
