Gun laws: We can do better
On Dec. 14, 20 children and six adults went to school at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., and they never got to leave.
A gunman, carrying three weapons and dressed in black clothing and a bulletproof vest, took the lives of those people.
The gun he used to kill his victims was a .233 caliber rifle, a firearm made for combat.
This semi-automatic Bushmaster assault rifle allows its shooter to fire more than 60 rounds per minute and can reload in seconds.
These are not used to hunt. They are not used for sport. They are used to kill people in combat.
