The 'Right to Bear Arms' Is Not More Important Than a Child's Right to Grow Up
....after seeing similar scenarios play out over and over again, in schools, movie theaters and malls, I'm ready to throw the 2nd Amendment out the f*cking window. Someone's "right to bear arms" is not more important than a child's right to grow old enough to get to middle school, have her first kiss, see Santa or light the final candles on the Menorah. Having access to a gun cannot take precedence over the safety of our schools. It simply can't.
The answer isn't to wrap our schools in barbed wire and turn them into prisons with pretty murals on the wall and jungle gyms. The answer is to stop ignoring the fact that the availability of guns in this country is literally killing us.
We spend a lot of time teaching our children to be safe. We hold their hands when they cross the street, tell them not to talk to strangers, and strap them in their carseats. It's a pillar of parenting -- stay safe. But sometimes you send your child to school and they don't come back. I don't even know how to process that.

It may sound messed up when taken account what we're taking about, but judging by some of the posts left by some of these gun nuts, the outcome is inevitable!

I just don't understand. The actions of the few only gives creedence to the words"we're living in last days. Now it's more like"were living in the last seconds of the last minute of the last day. For the words 20 babies was devoured by the beast to roll off my tongue is sickening. Only cowards (those scared of an old school fist fight) feel the need of a gun. It's Christmas time & that asshole not only killed 28 men, women, & children, but he robbed the rest of us of the spirit of peace & ease we normally feel around this time of year. He stole the innocence of what it means to be a child. His acts were barbaric & savage and though to think about the babies (dead/alive) enrages me, what really gets under my skin is the cowards on ths thread. The lack of remorse & respect you ignorant assholes display is repulsive. Be happy we don't know eachother because I don't know if could hold back from mentally snapping on ya'll.

ou who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good bye.

Teach your children well,
Their father's hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you'll know by.

Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

And you, of tender years,
Can't know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth,
They seek the truth before they can die...

Can you hear and do you care and
Cant you see we must be free to
Teach your children what you believe in.
Make a world that we can live in.

Teach your parents well,
Their children's hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you'll know by.

Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry...

So just look at them and sigh and know they love you....

That kid was MENTALLY ill, of a MENTALLY ill world.

And lashing out at others, calling them names, and wishing to deny their rights to self protection, won't change that fact not one bit.

Have to wonder about the "press/paparazi" sometimes too...and just wth these"experts" are that they get some of their MISinformation from!!
"Another law enforcement official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said Lanza had been diagnosed with Asperger's, a mild form of autism often characterized by social awkwardness...."
People with the disorder are often highly intelligent. While they can become frustrated more easily, there is no evidence of a link between Asperger's and violent behavior, experts say."
----------
Asperger's Disorder may not be the only psychological condition affecting a certain individual. In fact, it is frequently together with other problems such as:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
Depression (Major Depressive Disorder or Adjustment Disorder with Depressed Mood)
Bipolar Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
ODD represents more of a relationship dynamic between a child and the authority figures around her or him, than a disease process itself. Symptoms include argumentativeness with adults, talking back, refusing to follow adults' requests or rules, losing temper, deliberately annoying others, not taking responsibility for one's own actions, and being touchy, angry and resentful all the time. This can happen only at home, or may start at home and may eventually spill over to the school. Most children with ADHD, if untreated, eventually develop ODD because of daily negative feedback and punishment from adults, as a consequence of their impulsive behaviors. It is important to note that depression, in children and adolescents, may present with similar symptoms, rather than the expected symptoms like looking sad and crying frequently. A Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist should be consulted to differentiate the two. There is no medication treatment for ODD. Individual psychotherapy and sometimes family therapy are the best treatment methods.
Why does white people try make up some medical excuse when a white kid flips his lid? When a black kid flips out, I call a spade a spade. Most of these kids are not mentally ill infact they're victims of their parents own ignorance. Allowing the school to classify their children & put them on meds because the child is a lil hyper (ADHD) & every other abbreviated made up diseases. If you tell a kid something is wrong with them , they begin to believe it & use it as an excuse. The system fail these kids for proposes of greed, but their parents failed them also by their ignorance, believing everything schools & doctors say without questioning a thing THATS WRONG!

Listen skippy, you have digressed WAY off the topic.

The 24 year old had MENTAL problems. Maybe should've been a clue to those living in the same place with him (or wherever he acquired weapons from).

As far as medicating kids-way over done these days. COUNSELING on regular basis, would often most likely achieve FAR better results.
But just try and wing THAT at some of these parents who cannot even confront REALITY themselves, let alone their OWN IMPERFECTIONS.

Don't blame what starts at HOME-on the SYSTEM...they jsut have to deal with the little products people send in every day. DISRUPTIONS,the neglected, the uncared for, the second thoughts and all.

SHAME on THAT stuff!!

He is going to Newtown you ignorant POS. His going down there immediately would have been a distraction that police and other public safety officials didn't need.
By the way there were black, Hispanic and Asian students among those killed.

I respectfully disagree. This horrific incident could provide cover for politicians to take on the NRA and act on gun control law that could prevent more children from fates like this. The more time that passes the more likely assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons will remain available to the crazies among us.

1-A gun ban would have saved the lives of 20 children and 7 adults.
2-These murders were committed with legally owned firearms by a person with no criminal record.
3-You have no right to have a gun unless you are a member of a well organized militia, which you are not.
4-You are an idiot.
