Nation’s inaction in wake of gun violence is not what the Founding Fathers had in mind



In 1770, five Americans were massacred in Boston sparking a Revolution.
More than 250 years later, two 18-year-olds massacre 10 innocent patrons in a grocery store and 19 third and fourth graders and two teachers at a school while we wring our hands and do nothing.
And we, as enlightened citizens, endorse the premise that 18-year-olds lack the maturity to legally drink alcohol yet possess the intellectual stability to purchase, own and wield an assault weapon ... all while our grieving mothers weep and our Founding Fathers scratch their heads.
