Letter: Right to bear arms shall not be infringed

Letter: Unseen killings may be the worst of all
The killing of the kids and adults in Connecticut was terrible. I wonder what God thinks. The killing of 1.2 million babies in the womb every year is terrible. I wonder what God thinks? I wonder which of these killings God thinks is worse? We as humans probably think the Connecticut...
