No absolute right

The latest horrific news from Connecticut exposes the inadequacy of the refrain, "Guns don't kill people, people kill people."

The point is, we have to find a way to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous, crazy people. If that means background checks and waiting periods, so be it. No right, even the right to bear arms, is absolute.

Those children in Connecticut had a right to live, too.
