I find it interesting that none of the weapons used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre would be banned or restricted by anything in Sen. Dianne Feinstein's gun control legislation. Furthermore, nothing in the proposed law would have prevented the Sandy Hook assailant from gaining possession of the guns used.
So the question is this: How does this proposed legislation protect little children in the future?
The answer is: It does nothing to prevent a future Sandy Hook, but the government's gaining more control will make some people feel better.
