It’s been five years since deranged gunman Adam Lanza murdered 20 first-graders and six faculty at Sandy Hook Elementary School with a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle.

Remembering the nightmarish massacre on its anniversary today, various political activists, celebrities, and media figures are demanding gun control laws on social media.

No one calling for gun control has, as yet, suggested what new law would prevent mass shootings or why law-abiding gun owners should have their fundamental right to own firearms infringed.
