It is increasingly burdensome to hear people scream about their Second Amendment rights. The Second Amendment did not benefit the Mother Emanuel Nine, nor does it provide comfort to their grieving loved ones.

The Second Amendment is of no use to the 20 first graders slaughtered at Newtown. The Second Amendment is of no benefit to that five year old confined to a wheelchair because of a stray bullet. Nine wonderful people were slaughtered at Mother Emanuel, and all some folks do is scream about their sacred gun rights.

It seems that the conservative response to Newtown and Mother Emanuel is that my gun rights are more sacred than the lives of your slaughtered loved ones.

Get over it, already.
