Sorry, Governor Palin, but we are all to blame.
We as a society failed to protect that little nine year old girl and the other victims of Saturday's shooting in Tuscon. We failed because of an arcane interpretation of the Second Amendment
and an unwillingness to stand up to the NRA. We failed because we allow the sale of handguns like the semiautomatic Glock with a 31 round magazine, a weapon intended neither for self defense nor for hunting. We failed because we have elected leaders such as yourself who do not acknowledge the need for a civilized society to hold itself accountable when it cannot keep our children safe. Shame on all of us.
