    The obvious answer is no, however, if Obama continues to flail around in his efforts to enact gun control legislation, don't be surprised if they provide a backdrop for some speech he's giving in the near future. After all, if you can display the parents of these murdered children like some circus act, why not dig even deeper and pass out the gore?

    Yes, I'm fully aware of the thread I am posting in. Thanks for asking, however.

    Much better just to sweep in under the rug and pretend it didn't happen, right?

    I know having these parents of children dismembered by a guy wielding a semi-automatic bushmaster talking about their loss and advocating a reasonable, sensible approach to guns is inconvenient for those who worship these weapons, but them's the breaks.

    Generally, only if all parents agree. That said, makes no difference to me. It does not change the very real fact that innocent gun owners should not be punished for the actions of criminals. Nor will it change the very real fact that our federal government should NOT be making laws against (or for) guns as it is a violation of the 2nd Amendment.

    You should be aware that the type of firearm has very little to do with the resulting injury. A 30-06 round from a common hunting rifle would have done the same damage...more, actually. It doesn't matter whether the shooter used a semi-auto rifle, a pistol, a bomb or a chainsaw...he was intent on murdering people and did just that. Remember that the VT shooter only used pistols...but he carried several. As the saying goes, where there is a will there is a way.

    No the answer is no.

    The idea is repulsive and would serve no purpose.

    There are some things in this world better left unseen.

    Sir that is the most ignorant and disrespectful thing I have heard.

    How can you sweep this massacre under the rug! 26 family's greive for the loved ones. We know how they died but do we really need to relive the horror of that day by showing the dead body's full of gunshot wounds?

    Police use somthing called ballistics gel to simulate damage done to a human body, ever think of using that?

    It doesn't matter how many times you repeat the lie, it's still a lie. The shooter at Sandy Hook used 4 handguns, not a semi auto rifle.

    I started to vote, only if all the parents agree. Then I switched to no. I think there would be far too much undue pressure placed on the familys that didn't agree just to score some political points. I think privacy is needed here.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Re: Should the horrific photos of Newtown victims be published?

    OK a folks, a little sanity on the legality of this. I was in a CERT training program last night and learned that it is specifically illegal to take photographs of dead disaster victims. Even if the photographer had not intended to photograph a body in damage assessment photos, the device used to take the photo and any media containing it become evidence in a criminal investigation. Even a death in a natural disaster is considered a crime until an investigation has been completed. The course material for the class was provided by DHS.

    Beyond that those of you who are suggesting using these photos should be examined for psychological defect. Regardless of what your position is on gun control or any other issue thinking this is acceptable behavior puts you in a very dangerous group. I suspect that such a person poses a real risk to society.
