In the wake of the Newtown, Ct. shootings, calls for more restrictive gun laws abound. All these are 'feel good' or 'see what I did' types of laws. None will prevent the tragedies that have occurred from happening again. These laws will only affect the law abiding citizen. What is the answer? I do not know. What I do know is that anybody who wants to kill somebody will find a way to do it and use whatever means it takes to do it. I do not recall these types of events happening during my youth. Rather than coddling our children, maybe a good spanking might eliminate these gruesome events from occurring again.
