Will the Slaughter of the Innocents in Newtown Lead to Gun Law Reform in U.S.?

By Scott Harris and Anna Manzo

We produce Between The Lines every week about 25 minutes south of Newtown, Conn., and like people around the world, were shocked and sickened to hear of the unspeakable slaughter of 20 innocent children and 6 adults that took place Friday, Dec. 14, 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Read our blog post which includes a variety of articles, featuring both commentary and analysis of the Newtown massacre - including some very powerful personal testimonies from people whose lives were touched by senseless violence and their observations of the lessons we could learn from the children lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Millions felt shock and horror as the nation and the world learned of the unspeakable slaughter of 20 innocent children and 6 teachers at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. on Friday, Dec. 14. The facts as we know them are that 20-year-old Newtown resident Adam Lanza killed his mother with a gun she owned, and then drove to the school where he used a military-style Bushmaster AR-15 automatic rifle to murder the 6- and 7-year-olds and their teachers in their classrooms before killing himself.  Story continues

With less than two weeks before the deadline for concluding the “fiscal cliff” negotiations, President Obama and Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner have reportedly moved closer to an agreement on both generating new revenue and budget cuts. Without a deal between the White House and Congress before Jan. 1, all Americans will see an automatic tax increase of $500 billion and $109 billion in domestic and Pentagon spending cuts.  Story continues
