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.

I dont know but I've been told
Sex with girls just dont get old
Spent my life in South Chi-town
Gobblin every negro clown
They said that they were hung real well
But I'm so stoned I couldnt tell
I arm myself with crop & whip
And ride those bucks with steely grip
I've pumped so many dudes its sick
licked those nutz & sucked the dk
Remember me and tales I tell
Cause soon I'm goin straight to hell

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

is shooting 18 children an over reaction? you can rationally expect the same in reply.
It seems to me, caring for our mentally ill should be a bigger priority than gun control.

His mother worked at the school. She has been found dead. Try to get stuff right.

You are actually one of the more thoughtful posters on the blue side, and deserve a REAL reply.

If you can answer my question tendered earlier, we will be at the heart of the matter. To wit:

I grew up in a region where EVERY household had a veritable arsenal, yet there was not ONE school shooting (or even a solitary act of violence involving guns).

What has changed?

Really? A den of leftists isn't at all the impression I've gotten in the CT forums. Maybe you should take a look at who spews the hatred..

It is INDEED a moment of profound sadness, but equally disturbing is the puzzlement surrounding these types of heinous acts. I grew up in a communty where EVERY head of the household had an arsenal used in hunting equal to or better than any possessed by these school-shooting cowards, yet there was NOT ONE gun violence incident in my entire schooling duration Statewide (or regionwde, for that matter). In fact, no one even gave guns in the household a second thought. Morale? Its not the guns (because they havent changed); its the people, the civilization (term used loosely), and the morals that have fueled these scumbags.
High time we started utlizing eugenics and speedy capital punishment in our treatment of repeat violent criminals.....
I agree that something is triggering this kind of violence. I believe it has something to do with the uncertainty of the future and fears that are mounting by those who are already troubled to begin with.

Some people actually believe the world as we know it will end on December 21. Probably the same people who believed it the last time.

But this kind of doomsday mentality coupled with a bleak economic outlook could be a factor. Just speculation.

I hope and pray these were two isolated incidences that just happened to occur within the same week.

No need to "justify" any part of the US Constitution, including the Second Amendment.
