Third Anniversary

Today marks the of the shooting in Newtown.

NBC News tallied 554 cases of children under 12 killed in intentional or accidental shootings since the Newtown massacre — an average of one death every two days.

Over 90,000 people nationwide have been killed by gun violence since December 14, 2012.

A father of one of the victims, Lenny Pozner, has spent the past three years protecting his murdered son’s honor by fighting back against conspiracy theorists who believe the shooting was a hoax.

“In a country with 330 million people and 310 million guns, the suggestion that the problem is we don’t have enough guns available just doesn’t seem to hold much weight.”
