To the Editor:

... Politicians and the liberal state-controlled media have no problem exploiting a tragedy like the Sandy Hook massacre to offer up wrong arguments for stopping the death of innocents.

Most politicians and media surround themselves with armed security at all times yet are the ones who push for unconstitutional solutions that will not produce results.

President Obama and “Meet the Press” host David Gregory both send their children to the same school in Washington DC (Sidwell Friends) that hires armed guards to protect their children.

They are hypocrites on the gun-control issue.

Their outcry for stricter control of guns is their only solution. The truth is every single day mass murders are averted by armed civilians.

Law-abiding citizens must be allowed to carry guns and fight back against criminals....

Americans are committed to logic, truth, common-sense, and real solutions instead of the embarrassing attacks from our government and media on the Second Amendment.
