Lovely sentiment Nathan. Stricter gun laws are surely needed

[quote Lovely sentiment Nathan. Stricter gun laws are surely needed
Totally agree with Jenni, Nathan and like you say all for what time that country got real and made some serious changes .

A thoughtful image, Nathan.

Quote:Lovely sentiment Nathan. Stricter gun laws are surely needed

Totally. But as long as the Powers-That-Be don't use their powers for good, then this sorta stuff is gonna happen over and over again. Ok...I'll get off my soapbox before I get shot by a nutcase who's been given the pointless right to carry a gun. I heard that Obama shed a tear. That ain't gonna raise the dead. Don't just talk about CHANGE, Mr. President. Walk the walk.

Lovely tribute, Nathan. I hate what's just happened and this is why I haven't read the news in ages. All I find is humans at their worst. I can't begin to imagine what the family, relatives and friends of those 26 are going through. Their lives are wrecked forever.

I'm sure everyone is shocked at the tragic events in Newtown, but given the gun laws as they are perhaps none should be surprised.
A most thoughtful way of reminding us, as if we need reminding, of the pain and loss for so many there, Nathan.

These people who fight to retain their gun laws do not think how it destroys other than American lives! One of the tiny boys was British, what choice did his family have when he was brutally gunned down by this maniac. Fitting tribute Nathan but makes my blood boil when these mass murders happen.

Very nice tribute Nathan, but as long as they bleat on about their effin constitution things will not change. How can a persons "right" be more valuable than life !! They are a bunch of hippocrates in my book. Obama may be the guy to sort the mess out , i hope so. Take care Nathan

I'd say the same.
an image that provokes much thought. We have strict laws here but look how many have been shot.The world is awash with weapons and people are starving seems to me not the guns but the people are the problem.

nice tribute billy

Our thoughts are with the families that has lost their loved ones . I just cant look at the news it's verry heart breaking as I work in a primary school with little ones the same age as those that lost their lives and we all ask WHY?
