This week on The John Link show we remember the tragedy that occurred on December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza, age 20, fatally shot twenty children and six adult staff members and wounded two at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the Sandy Hook village of Newtown, Connecticut. Before driving to the school, he had shot and killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, at their Newtown home. After killing the students and staff members, Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself as first responders arrived.

The massacre is the second-deadliest school shooting in United States, after the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre. It also is the second-deadliest mass murder at an American elementary school, after the Bath School bombings of 1927.

We will remember the the young victims of this massacre and explore various levels the incident including the much talked about 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms and levels of mental stability of the average American citizen, and what we may or may not be able to do to prevent such incidents from ever occurring again in our country.

Please tune in as we remember the young lost lives on that tragic day as we pay our respects. Thank you.
