The school shooting in Connecticut is a very horrible and senseless tragedy.

Why would anyone want to shoot innocent children and adults? Our schools are supposed to be places of learning, respect, discipline and safety. When parents send their children off to school, they certainly expect that they are going to be in a safe, caring learning environment.

The last thing that they should have to worry about is that some deranged maniac will shoot their children in school. It seems that there is no longer any sense of respect for life, morals or values in our society today.

Congress needs to toughen up the existing gun laws and also needs to enact newer ones to severely restrict the sale of guns in this country. Far too many people who should not have guns have them.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those children and adults who were wounded. We hope that they will recover speedily, and we also pray for their families, friends, classmates, teachers and administrators who were also affected by this senseless act of horror.
