Why oh, why, were those school children already being interviewed on this massacre within hours of the carnage? My God ... I was still weeping and I couldn't even imagine what those children were going through; those kids didn't even know if all their friends survived. What parent, what news correspondent couldn't let those poor students be and not exploit the situation? PLEASE: Leave the kids & their families alone -- let the police investigate, and don't put these poor children in the media spotlight with questioning. Shame on the media-hoar parents who let their kids be spotlighted. And double-shame on the media outlets for even pursuing these kinds of stories in the name of news.

You guys are idiots running that piture without blurring those kids faces. They're under 18 and just went through their friends and siblings being killed. in front of them. Have some respect for them in their families.

Let your 6 year old kids watch shows like sons of guns and play violent video games and you'll see how they will turn out when they reach 20. They'll want to own guns and have fun by shooting innocent people.

I am a CHL carrier. I was vetted and background checked before I was allowed to even participate in the education element of the process. Unfortunately I have to say that if there were armed (open carry) trained teachers at the school there would have been fewer deaths. Another observation, if I recall - any of the recent shootings the shooter did not have a legal license to carry and in this case, the shooter used his mother's guns to commit this atrocity.

I believe by removing the stigmal of mental illness, providing the treatment thru medical insurance (like no caps on mental health), and going back to being able to hospitalize people that are sick might be a good start. Let's not ignore this by screaming about guns.

OK Ban assault rifles- his was in the car. OK call for mental tests before buying a gun. Oh he stole the guns. OK Ban criminals. He was a nice kid. Oh OK now explain how we stop this again?

The first reaction to tragedies like this is to take away everyones rights and guns. Strict gun measures do not protect against mass shooting. Norway has some of the strictest gun laws and they had a gunman kill 77. Instead of taking away guns from law abiding citizens, why dont we let the teachers carry weapons to protect themselves and the students.

Pride cometh before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction. When you are too proud to see your own faults and the trauma that you needlessly cause others, you see your destruction befall you. If you want to live in a safe society, you need mutual respect, not gun control.

"Mental tests for gun owners"????
A mental test would not have heloed a damn thing!
He stole those weapons from his mother..
Once again a thief has the weapon whereas the innocent become the victim.
QUIT MAKING THE VICTIMS OUT TO BE THE GUILTY ONES

Just love the knee jerk and mindless liberals who are the first to politicize and blame it on guns. Typical. These fools never blame the jackasses who commit the crimes. They blame the guns as if they operate alone. Meanwhile, they have bodyguards who carry.

Conn. has strict gun laws yet those laws obviously didn't prevent the tragedy.

You fools think crime is bad now. Wait until Obama uses executive order to make everyone turn in their guns. Oh boy the thugs will be laughing as the home invasions, car-jackings and muggings sky rocket.

And to the idiot Crystal who said we should use more non lethal guns as to not mortally wound our attackers, just hurt them enough to call for help. WHAT! YOU BRAINLESS TWIT! Do you think the bad guys give a sh*t about your well-being? The police only clean up messes. They don't prevent a damn thing. Protect yourself or be a defenseless victim.

Turn off your iphone, get off Facebook, stop watching NBC and use your brain. F'ing moron!

People die all the time from all kinds of things, even children in schools. I heard that some forced vaccinations on Native American children in VA has now caused them to die or suffer from complications of Lyme Disease. Children in China died at school when buildings collpased due to poor contruction when an earthquake hit. Should we ban doctors and architects to protect the children then?


People say that children are cruel but they are only more obviously cruel. It is the adults who institutionalize evil that cause the children under them to go mad with rage and confusion. People want to attack mental patients, gun owners, freedom in school, everyone and everything that is unrelated.


When you mix social isolation, pschiatric meds, an overbearing parent, a condesceding society, and who knows what else, you get a ****tail that produces random violence.
