FOR ALL THE TALK, AND THERE'S BEEN PLENTY, WE STILL DON'T KNOW THE WHOLE STORY ABOUT WHAT WENT DOWN LAST FRIDAY AT SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY IN NEWTOWN, CONNECTICUT.
Nevertheless, politicians and particularly "anti-gun" shills have been blabbering all over TV and the radio. We find it sickening that they have decided to use as a catch-phrase that the mass murder of innocent children is a "game-changer". This is not a game, and we inagine these "antis" are secretly rubbing their hands together and dancing with glee in the blood of these beautiful, precious children.
As you can imagine, we here at the Alexandria Daily Poop have some pretty strong opinions about all of this. But the National Rifle Association has decided to show respect for the grieving families and has shut down its Facebook and Twitter accounts while the grim ritual of burying the slain kids goes on.
And so we shall remain silent on the subject of this tragedy and the gun debate until after New Year's Day. (The picture on the masthead stays the same. We're not a mental weakling.)
We only wish the politicians and the "antis" would be decent people and shut up long enough to allow the families of these kids to deal with their grief and not feel like a collective bunch of political footballs. But they won't, because they're not.
