    Shootings At Connecticut Elementary School

    More than a dozen killed; mostly children.

    This is so messed up.

    http://gma.yahoo.com/breaking-conn-s...opstories.html

    Authorities say at least 26 people, including 18 children, were killed Friday when a gunman opened fire inside a Connecticut elementary school. A law enforcement official said the shooter, who is dead, is believed to be a father of one of the students at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Authorities recovered a Glock and Sig Sauer 9mm handgun, but it was unclear who killed the shooter, who wore black combat garb and a military vest.

    An official with knowledge of the situation said the man, described as in his 20's, had two guns. The motive is not yet known.

    Earlier reports of a second gunman are unconfirmed.

    Oh God, that is horrible. I hate when such things happen, especially when most of the deads were innocent.

    Acutally if those kids were allowed guns someone could have killed them first.
    With the aid of more guns lives could have been saved.

    THIS literally send chills down my spine.


    My thoughts to all the children, staff, and their families that were affected. I've always wanted stricter gun control laws and never understood why so many Americans wanted unnecessarily powerful weapons.

    Prepare to get flamed by the American Gun Elite on these forums.

    Seriously though, it's ironic that you don't witness these kind of things NEARLY as often in other parts of the world that HAVE stricter gun laws in place. Just saying...

    Find me one of those countries with comparable demographics to the US.

    I'll be waiting.

    Why don't you properly educate yourself on the matter before developing an opinion/jumping to conclusions.

    Let's outlaw knives, cars and motorcycles as well. Those kill people too, right?

    I'm just going to say that today one man started stabbing people in China. No one died.
    I wonder how things would be if he had pistols.

    Glad for that. That he's not dead of course.

    I'll say my two cents as I know I'll probably get flamed to hell and back for this.

    Really outlawing knives, cars, and motorcycles while people can die from being stabbed or from car accidents and even motorcycles accidents how many times do you hear about people going on rampages with a car or knife?

    Plus how many times have you heard of someone killing 30 people or even 10 with a knife?

    Look my only thing is we shouldn't even have handguns when I see most people hunting they using rifles. Only time I ever see handguns used to gun down another human being. At some point in time this topic is going to have to get talked about and if it can't be talked about after someone killed 18 kids then I guess it never will which is extremely sad.

    Tell you what. Not nearly as many children would have died if all he had available were knives, etc.

    Guns are just too dangerous because all you have to do is pull a trigger.

    All you have to do with a knife is stab someone repeatedly with it. All you have to do with a car is drive it into a crowd of people. You have it wrong. A mentally-unstable person with an agenda is dangerous. It is the person, not the weapon.

    Absolutely terrible news.

    I don't see how anyone else can see this as anything else. Terrible things happen in this world; death is inevitable, we all know that much.

    But when tragic things DO happen; there's absolutely nothing wrong with empathising to those involved and affected.

    Thoughts to all the families.

    Yep. As much as I am pro live and let live (own/do what you want so long as it doesn't hurt anybody or stop anybody from being themselves) and taking into account that no place is "perfect"; I don't see how you can't draw correlations of this event and past events to anything else.

    These guys should've been blowjobs for real. How does this kind of plan even come up?

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    This is my kids last day in school. They will be home schooled from here on out. My wife was in class in 1995 when a suspended boy came in and started shooting people. She's literally in tears right now. These poor kids and families.

    I think you are exagerating. I am pretty sure that such things can only happen in countries like America, in Switzerland such people wouldnt even have weapons.
