AP: 27 Dead, Including 18 Children, At Sandy Hook School Shooting In Newtown

that's the one folks. how many of us have children sitting in school as we speak? gun control will not go by the wayside on this one. necessary changes will be passed into law.
A crazy person in China used a machete to commit mass murder a few years ago.

You're not going to stop the crazy by taking away guns. The innocent have the right to protect themselves.

Stop lying, you've lost the battle, Obama is the POTUS and the economy is finally beginning to get back on track. The Bush era nearly destroyed the greatest nation on earth, McCain couldn't get his azz elected nor could Romney__it seems to a matter trust eh?

<quoted text>Iran, Russia or both. Syria's chemical weapons stock pile is located just to the Southeast of Aleppo and is being guarded by Syrian military personnel who have drawn up tightly around the base. Rebel forces control the rest of the region, it's roads, etc. so the chemical weapons are in jail so to speak.
There were five short range Syrian built scuds launched this week from near Damascus towards the Northern areas, apparently they caused no damage. Syria is said to have up to 400 Russian built long range scuds in it's arsenal, wherever that is.
The Syrian military is also using barrel bombs which sound to me like a newer version of what the US used to call foo gas.
Assad's days are numbered, even Russia agrees that the rebel forces will likely prevail. Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan will pick up the remaining pieces, the US will provide some funding.
The losers are Russia, Iran and the 40,000 plus Syrians who died in the revolt.
No American lives lost, no Syrian blood on America's hands.
Fkn McCain wanted to invade!
Regardless of the outcome in Syria, it won't be good.

Most likely another Egypt.

A worm like you could never hurt my feelings. I am enjoying watching you exploit the slaughter of children for your own pleasure though; exposes you for what you are. Soon there will be bloody pictures for you to masturbate over...

People are taking out their frustrations on others because something has to be different. The tension in the air is something most of us can tangibly feel. Only the insulated in their denial are whistling.
But three mass shootings in a little more than five months...something just isn't right.
However, no snake oil here. I actually heard myself say to my husband this afternoon that maybe we should buy a gun and get a concealed gun license.
If you knew me, you'd know how unusual it was for me to say that. I don't have any problem with gun ownership but never wanted to own one in my entire lifetime. It's astonishing that I would even suggest it.
However, I still don't want to own a gun.

Why are you people so focused on the guns? We need to focus on the people who could do such a thing. A person did this. What was wrong with him?
how many 'people' have we seen this year who've done much the same.

and not that it's even going to matter. go hit Twitter. you'll see very quickly that the focus will be on guns.

is shooting 18 children an over reaction? you can rationally expect the same in reply.

Take my advice, do the world a favor, and kill yourself....:-)
TALL ORDER FO' YOU, APPARENTLY. YES, I'M SURE THERE A REAL OT OF GUYS WHO WISH THEY'D BEEN ABLE TO INTERVENE THIS MORNING, AN' YOU SEEM TO BE MOST OF THEM?

He was in his 20's, had a child at the school. Probably some custody issue, people go crazy around holidays, it's awful. They have guns and want to take their frustrations out on the world, instead of just killing themselves. At least this killer was shot dead, they should have done that to the Batman killer.
There are too few facts confirmed to draw any conclusions.

Your sentiment on the theater killer is understandable, but giving the police the power to execute suspects on the spot is dangerous.

The latest rumor is far different than your scenario above, but no point in repeating it.

ok then, let's get rid of concealed carry. if you're going to live in fear let's at least wear the gun on the hip so we can put some fear into everyone else.

Wishful thinking. The evidence is to the contrary. Unless you think that a growth rate of 1% or so is acceptable and are willing to accept a permanent lowering of our standard of living.

so everyone in a blue state is a liberal?????

maybe he was a fed up teabagger who couldn't cope with liberals...

more likely though this has nothing to do with politics except for those idiots who try and read political motives into it to make some strange idiotic point

It seems to me, caring for our mentally ill should be a bigger priority than gun control.

"Is shooting 18 children an over reaction?". Wtf does that mean? You've lost it.
