Time Magazine:

Last week in Santa Barbara, six more families joined that terrible club. I don’t personally know Richard Martinez, but when he said in an interview “you never think it can happen to you,” I hung my head and cried.

Mark Barden's 7-year-old son was killed by Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Anyone can become a member of the terrible club he joined that day. You are free to be a member of the NRA, but you are forced to be a member of the terrible club.
