As Newtown buries the victims this week, the conversation for gun control is already in full swing. President Barack Obama will announce his thoughts on gun policy Wednesday, according to CNN.
Some say it is too soon to engage in these political discussions.
"With a doubt it is too early," said Montalvo on the Middletown Patch Facebook page. "I am tired of people making this a political issue! For goodness sake let the families grieve."
Others remained fierce in their belief that stricter gun control regulations would have prevented such a killing, saying the victims were shot multiple times and with semi-automatic weapons, according to Fox News.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) of America made their first statement on Tuesday about the shooting, citing respect for the victims as the reason for their silence.
"Out of respect for the families, and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for mourning, prayer and a full investigation of the facts before commenting," the NRA provided in a statement. They will conduct a press conference on Friday.
The guns were owned by the shooter's mother and were legally purchased. Among them were a semi-automatic .223 caliber bushmaster rifle and two handguns. Those who knew Nancy Lanza said guns were a hobby.
