I’m sorry Adam Lanza shot Erica Lafferty’s mother. I wish he hadn’t done that. I wish Lanza hadn’t shot anyone. I also wish Erica Lafferty’s mother had been carrying a Smith & Wesson 642 Airweight in her pocket. I wish she’d run up to Lanza, pressed the barrel to his chest and pulled the trigger one or more times. And I wish that Eric Lafferty would understand that nothing the Senate could have done on gun control—or could do now—will prevent another spree killer from initiating the same kind of murderous rampage that claimed her mother. And anything they do to disarm law-abiding citizens enables evil, rather than prevents it. As for Chris, well, you can guess my wishes on that score.
