Newtown's grief should be a rallying cry as well
Do we know whether the gunman who killed 20 elementary school children and six adults obtained his weapons through legitimate means? Not yet. Would gun registration have made a difference? Unclear so far. Is it a coincidence that Newtown, Conn., the town where the shooting took place -- a small, picturesque and usually ultra-safe place -- is also the home of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which describes itself as the "trade association for the firearms industry"? Probably.
