"What a ghoulish trade, and no wonder Americans loathe the media"

Columnist/talk show host Hugh Hewitt nails it, blasting the vulture-like media coverage of the Newtown massacre.

And here’s info lost on most members of the anti-gun news media. It comes from Carl Cannon at Real Clear Politics:

“Yet one maddening aspect of the Newtown shooting is that it seems that no reasonable precautions would have stopped it. The school itself had a security system, reportedly installed recently by the principal, making access to the building controlled. The gunman simply forced his way in, according to Connecticut police.

“Authorities also reported that Lanza shot his victims with a deadly semiautomatic Bushmaster, an assault rifle modeled after the M-16. But he also carried two deadly handguns: a 9mm Glock semiautomatic and a 9mm SIG Sauer pistol, and all three firearms were duly registered by Lanza’s mother, whom he apparently also killed. The point is that even if the federal restrictions on assault weapons envisioned by Dianne Feinstein and Kirsten Gillibrand had been in force, the staff and first-graders at Sandy Hook would still have been confronted by a well-armed and mentally unstable invader.

“In other words, this country has a larger problem than the Second Amendment.”
