Last Friday’s horrific attack on the Sandy Hook Elementary School was not unexpected. As news filtered in, Dan and I discussed our previous concerns that a spree killing would unleash a wave of gun control hysteria that would sweep away many it not all of the gains made by the gun rights movement since TTAG began some three years ago. We shook our heads in disbelief at the heinous crime, rolled up our metaphorical sleeves and got to work. Drawing on Nick, Bruce, John and other contributors, we’ve published dozens of articles on the resulting anti-gun gestalt. We’ve also provided a platform for gun owners who understand that America’s firearms freedom is a defense against evil, not a contributing factor. I wish it was unnecessary. I wish this brutal act had never occurred. Nothing—no law, no argument, no words on a screen—will ever heal the heartbreak of the victims’ friends and family. Nothing. And yet, in their name, we carry on.
