It's important not to label all children or adults with Asbergers or autism as violent, or potential killers. Parents of these children face difficult challenges, I would guess that Lanza had some sort of psychotic breakdown, perhaps schizophrenic. We may never know what happened, the father and brother are cooperating and computer records have been subpoenaed.
Nevertheless, no one needs an assault weapon
Most people know somebody with a kid who is "strange" in some way. Almost impossible to tell which are really dangerous.

No, talking about kids who appear odd to responsible adults.

Obviously the shooter was insane - there's no other meaningful way to define the mental state of someone who murders people at random, let alone little kids. It's not possible to know what kind of chaos or hatred was swirling around in that mind that produced these actions, but one thing is 100% certain for me: It had nothing whatsoever to do with having Asperger's, if indeed it is the case that he had that condition. Maybe the isolation and difficulty communicating deprived him of social supports that help other people cope with life, but I can't comprehend an autistic-spectrum disability being the actual cause of such actions.

Parents of children on the spectrum are up in arms about the reference to his diagnosis. They're claiming the media is equating Asperger's/autism with psycopathic tendencies. In a sense, they are, since so few people understand the disorder; and even fewer know the difference between it and the syndrome. But dang, it sure adds another layer to the story. Seems it doesn't matter anymore whether it's true or not...

The Republican base is fiscal conservatives, not the religious nutjobs. Time to gear campaigns to that reality and the turnout will improve.

Yet you support raising taxes to maintain the size of government instead of emphasizing cutting government programs.
Many conservatives would support tax increases coupled with significant budget cuts to move toward a balanced budget.
However, in the current environment, the "fiscal cliff" is preferable to Obama's ridiculous plan.
lol! Really? Watch how many people will prefer it when it happens!

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.

Very few, because they believe in Christmas in July and free lunch every day.

The "fiscal cliff" is pretty much the same as the recommendations of Obama's deficit reduction commission.
