The Sandy Hook Tragedy

As everyone knows,this past week was one that was chock full of tragic shootings in places such as shopping malls and parking lots(with my cousin having been across the street from a shooting assault at a Macy’s parking lot in Southern California[with the madman being thankfully caught]),but nothing’s more sadder than the 20-year-old psychopath who carried a gun and assaulted the Sandy Hook elemnetary school of Newtown,Connecticut,killing over 20 people(including children and teachers)before taking his own life.

This now brings up the nationwide debate upon whether we should either ban guns or enforce stricter gun controls laws than the ones that were passed over 20 years ago(after Senator James Brady got shot in John Hinkley’s failed 1981 assassination attempt on then-Presdient Ronald Reagan),for as far as it goes for me enforcing stricter gun control and banning guns(as well as enforcing stricter laws on movie violence[another topic which was briefly brought up after this tragedy]) isn’t going to stop violent crimes from happening,for getting tougher on crime and passing tougher crime laws is the only way to do it.

Another thing that’s peculiar about these recent tragic shootings is that they’ve occured during the previous week before the week(which is now this week[the same week where President Obama unwisely extended the economy killing George W. Bush tax cuts{as the Fiscal Cliff Of Doom very slowly approachs}:Why…Why ?!]) where this coming Friday(as of this writing) will be the day upon whether or not that predicted Mayan End Of The World doomsday event will actually occur or not,for will that event actually happen or will it just quickly come-and-go past by us as the predicted doomsday/End Of The World year of 1984(where the world was once supposed to end,ala this year).

I’d address some more about it(and other issues),but I have got too many large stacks of DVDs and Blu Rays to watch(and keep myself more busy with than being engulfed by the large tidal wave of other peoples’ endless Facebook drama[that once frequently plagued{and played half a role in helping ruin} MySpace]).

R.I.P.: Danny Steinmann(the director of SAVAGE STREETS,the porn film HIGH RISE,and FRIDAY THE 13TH.:PART 5;A NEW BEGINNING
