Steps are finally being taken to protect our children from gun violence!

It's been nearly four months since Adam Lanza murdered 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School — today Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy signed a bill aimed at preventing similar tragedies.

The law bans the sale of over 100 different guns and also magazines, such as the ones Adam used, that hold more than ten rounds.

Connecticut House majority leader Joe Aresimowicz is proud of the new legislation. He said

Sandy Hook Murderer Hoped For Record Death Toll

This is just horrible.

Adam Lanza killed 26 people and then himself in December. It turns out he hoped to kill many, many more.

Law enforcement investigators believe the young man responsible for the mass-murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School planned to outdo the Norwegian man who killed 77 people in 2011.

Charlie Sheen Weighs In On Gun Violence With Piers Morgan, Admits He's Given Up All His Weapons

When Charlie Sheen thinks you're cuckoo, it's time to look in the mirror!

The Anger Management star and noted warlock joins Piers Morgan tonight on, oddly enough, Piers Morgan Tonight and discusses everything from Lance Armstrong's legacy of lies to the heated debate on assault weapons.

Ch-ch-check out the promo for tonight's episode (above), where Charlie admits he once collected guns and shot at targets in his basement!

Police forced him to forfeit the weapons after his "domestic," but the actor says he barely misses them.

He also dares the money-hungry NRA lobbyists to look a Sandy Hook victim's parents in the eye and explain to them precisely why people should have access to the deadly assault rifles that killed their child.

Hmm, maybe we've had too much tiger blood for breakfast, but he makes several good points!

Charlie Sheen for Congress?? ….Nah.

We applaud Piers for continuing to focus on this epidemic of violence as we continue to extend our well-wishes to all those affected.

Ann Coulter, A Month After Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre: Gun Crime In America Is Not A Problem For "White Populations"

Honestly, we can't even tell you what's more hurtful and sickening here:

That this woman honestly, truly believes all of the hateful, racist nonsense that she shamefully spouts out or that there are people all over this country who support those beliefs.

Although we hate to add to Ann Coulter's already delusional, engorged ego by allowing ourselves to get worked up over her latest hate-spewed tirade against common sense and logic, the right-wing political commentator has truly outdone herself this time while appearing on last night's Hannity to give her latest opinion on the current gun violence debate in the United States.

Make sure you haven't just eaten, because you'll most definitely lose your lunch when you watch (above)!

Yeah.

All we have to say here is that even if that what-sounds-to-be-a-BS statistic about the rates of gun violence in "white communities" compared to "other demographics" is even true in some deliberately limited fashion, how DARE she blatantly ignore the social constructs and institutionalized racism that bleed through our country's politics, legislation, and economy that keep individuals living in poverty, stuck with life-long stigmas preventing them from access to real opportunity, and desperate to do what they have to just to live with a FRACTION of the comfort her lifestyle allows.

Of course, that's also ignoring the fact

Here Is President Obama's Poignant Reaction As He Learns Of Sandy Hook Shootings

Filed under: R.I.P.Barack ObamaSad Sad

Ugh! This breaks our heart into teeny-tiny pieces!

The White House released a bitter-sweet cacophony of new photos into their Flickr stream this week — hidden among them was one soul-crushing image from December 14 of President Barack Obama listening to counterterrorism advisor John Brennan.

Adam Lanza had just gunned down 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School and this haunting portrait of our Commander-in-Chief hearing the news (above) offers insight into why he now calls the "worst day of his Presidency."

Clearly he is simultaneously affected on several levels.

He grieves as the leader of a wounded nation, sure, but also as a father to two children similar in age to those killed at the school.

While the pic is tough to swallow, it serves as a chilling reminder that this heinous crime victimized more people than we may realize.
