On December 14, 2012, at least one gunman entered the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut and opened fire, killing what is currently being reported as a minimum of 27 people, 20 of whom were children. Completely innocent unarmed victims.

How many more innocents must die at the hands of an antiquated and oft-misinterpreted amendment? Enough.
