Here in Missoula, Montana Shooting Sports Association president Gary Marbut counters the anti-gun argument by stating that the school shootings in Connecticut were made possible by public policy that ensured that the Sandy Hook School would be unprotected when the assailant arrived.
Marbut adds that the assailant used a rifle in the attack, and according to the Centers for Disease Control there were 384 people killed by rifle fire, while over 400 people died while falling out of bed. He says the emotional arguments used by liberal groups is referred to as 'dancing in the blood of the victims', by using the tragedy to promote a political agenda.
