4. When there is discussion about these types of shootings there is always

someone who replies how rare these shootings are. They usually compare them to auto accidents. It appears to me that they are becoming less rare and this nation needs to change it's attitude regarding weapons. I pray for the parents and children.
Innocent children seem to be the ones in real danger and they cannot carry weapons to protect themselves as is often mentioned, "If someone was just armed they could have prevented this." We need to start having a real conversation and the Lindsey Grahams of the world need to stop acting like this topic is off limits. It is so sad that children are involved.

29. I hate that comparison

The absurdity of comparing the frequency of mass shootings to the frequency of auto accidents can be summed up by imagining the following hypothetical, post-event statements:

"I was driving to the store to get groceries, and a most unfortunate event occurred: I got into a car accident."

"I was going to the school to shoot a bunch of innocent people, and a most unfortunate event occurred: I shot a bunch of innocent people."

7. MSNBC is reporting the Principle of the school is dead but no report of children injured/killed

so hopefully CNN is wrong (again).

12. I'm assuming that a kid brought a gun to school...

...and not that a bad man went to an elementary school to kill a child.

17. Good question.

I couldn't wrap my head around the idea that an adult would target a child in an elementary school with a gun. As it turns out, the shooter was in fact an adult and there may have been two shooters. Now I'm thinking that the child that was injured/killed? was somehow caught in the crossfire and that the target was someone inside the school office.

I'll save further speculation until more facts are available.

14. If this is the case

MSNBC has not gone there, but these scenes are chaotic...perhaps that will help to get the actual real conversation going...


Nah, guns don't kill people!!!!

15. I am so f...in sick of the NRA and their

guns and their interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. When is enough, enough???? If we already have gun control rules on the books, then, damn it, enforce them!! If we don't have them, then get them!! Why are the repugs, tea party, and jackasses so afraid of the NRA? It's getting to the point that people will be afraid to leave their homes to shop, go to school, church, etc. for fear of being shot.

26. In Newtown??!?!?!?!?!

Holy s**t! I used to live in the town right next to that one. This is not a town with any sort of crime rate. It's a smallish, upscale suburb-type place. I think actor Anthony Edwards used to live in the Sandy Hook section (where that school is located). Never in a million years would I imagine anything like this ever happening in this town.

Wow....

28. Oh god....

I just had to call my ex-husband because I remembered that one of his/our friends (who I lost touch with after the divorce) teaches at that school ... or so I thought. Apparently, she used to teach there but is now at another school in that same town. This is awful .... she probably knows most of the people killed there.

31. Official: 27 confirmed dead, including 18 children, in Conn. school shooting

UPDATE: Reuters and other news agencies are reporting that as many as 27 people, including several children, were killed in an elementary school shooting .

A lone gunman at the center of a terrifying morning elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., has been killed, authorities say.

The Hartford Courant reported that shortly after 9:40 a.m. today, the shooter was in the main office at Sandy Hook Elementary School and at least one victim had numerous gunshot wounds. Two handguns were recovered from the scene.

Mayor Mark Boughton said several victims were taken to local hospitals. But details were sketchy. The Newtown Bee reported that a police officer carried a seriously wounded child from the building. (The Courant also said one shooter was reported dead) ...
