Your writing is very one sided and yours facts are dubious at best.

If I had been there with mine, I could have saved so many lives by taking the murderer down effectively. Instead, the uninformed (albeit well intentioned) such as yourself, continue to campaign against guns, instead of asking why this person wanted to kill innocent people, which again I state, is done statistically less and less with a rifle. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/cri me-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-201 1/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-8

Actually, the 30,000 gun-related deaths per year pales in comparison to the 480,000 deaths per year from tobacco:

Selling removes the reputational stain of owning the top U.S. manufacturer of the deadliest consumer product known to man.

Just sayin.

We can’t got one paragraph into the article without you putting out a factual inaccuracy. The gun used in the Newtown shooting was not an assault rifle.
