Residents Of Newtown Connecticut Resisted Gun Control Efforts
There has been a long history of recreational gun use in Newtown. Some residents, and the police, had proposed new regulations that would have been more restrictive. This article describes the views of those who supported the new regulations and the views of those who opposed them. One resident argued that American freedom depends upon the use of guns. He also cited the theme of the NRA in opposition to gun control. Guns don't kill anyone. Crazy people are responsible. It never occurs to avid supporters of the recreational use of guns, that there is a need to prevent crazy people from having access to assault weapons.
