Governor Deval Patrick …

… should follow the great advice of Boston Mayor Tom Menino: Appoint a GUN-CONTROL ADVOCATE AS INTERIM SENATOR to replace John Kerry, soon to be US Secretary of State. President Obama is gonna need all the help he can muster to get Congress to pass his sensible gun control legislation.

The NRA has promised The Fight of the Century when it comes to even the most common sense gun control, like universal background checks, banning weapons of war, limiting the amount of ammo in a round.

The massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School only took 10 minutes to carry out! Ten minutes to slaughter 20 children and six adults. Ten minutes! Because of the type of gun Lanza, the murderer, used. It only took a few pulls of the gun trigger and hundreds of bullets ripped into the flesh of babies. Gangland bloodbath. That’s what America experienced at Newtown, Conn.

News reports stated there were at least three bullets in each dead child. Maybe if the murderer had a less lethal weapon, a weapon that forced him to stop after 10 bullets, stop to reload, some adult could have jumped him, tried to stop the carnage. One adult did throw herself in front of the gunman to protect the little kids. A totally selfless act of love.

THIS WILL ALL HAPPEN AGAIN, AT ANOTHER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL if we don’t enact sensible gun control laws.

Listen to Tom Menino, Governor Patrick: Appoint a gun control advocate
