Children are murdered every day

To the Editor:

Our nation is shocked and saddened by the recent murders of 20 young children and six adults in Connecticut.

Our government feels like part of the solution to stop such tragedy is to put a ban on assault weapons.

Why is our nation not shocked and saddened when our government allows hundreds of unborn children to be murdered every day by legalized abortions? A simple solution to stop that tragedy would take a stroke of a pen.

If the media could post, on televison, the happy, smiley faces of these victims, maybe our nation would take notice. — Joyce Schmidtz, Little Falls
