I guess the most appalling thing about this latest NRA debacle is that the news coverage seems to be concentrating on letting the generic populace know that "they are safe".
There are eighteen kids dead and we should worry about whether the residents of wherever it is Connecticut are safe???

But those residents are apparently more interested in being “safe”.
Or so the news would cause one to conclude.
Apparently they are waiting for “Old John Wayne" (quote from a Garth Brooks song).
