Here’s a poignant CBS television interview with the Barden family, whose 7-year-old son Daniel was murdered in the Newtown shooting. What struck me, besides the inconsolable pain that could be multiplied eleven thousand times per year in the U.S., was what Mrs. Barden, whose family is adopting a kitten, says starting at 1:28. “I don’t know a lot about guns, but I think it’s a little easier to get a gun than a kitten.” That’s pretty much true, and it’s what’s wrong with our gun-ridden society.
But what’s just as sick as our lax gun regulations is the description of the video written by its poster, which he—I’m sure it’s a male—titled “Grieving Newtown parents want your guns.”
Still not a single tear from this Stepford family. This Barden woman is complaining that its “easier to buy a gun than it is to adopt a kitten.” Pretty funny actually.
