The horror at Sandyhook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. will bring great urgency to the debate on gun control. May reason prevail.

Gun control WOULD NOT have stopped this! Pyscho idiots and criminals will always be able to follow through with their horror! If he had not have had a gun - it could have been a homemade bomb, knife, or even some type of poisonous substance. When people get these deranged ideas in their heads - nothing will stop them. Taking guns away only puts more innocent people in danger. If someone at this school would have been armed this could have been stopped before all these innocent babies died at the hands of an idiot!

Exactly right! Arm the teachers and admin. personnel. Of course most of the liberal wimps working in schools will refuse to be armed. Get ready for the left to come out hard on taking away our guns. Obama is shouting with joy another crisis has happened and will use it to further destroy our great nation.

Problem is you people. You could NOT walk into a school with a knife and kill that many kids, it takes a gun. Guns kill, thatís a plain and simple fact. This country has more useless guns than any country in the world. Citizens have NO real use for handguns or automatic weapons. If this guy were carrying a shotgun he would have been stopped at the door. We NOW have the right to carry guns and it has NOT had ANY IMPACT on nuts killing innocent people and it NEVER will.
The people who do this type of thing are not criminals, they are lunatics acting on impulse. If the killer had not had immediate access to two of his mothers legally purchased guns those kids would not be DEAD. Your right to own guns is not the issue, itís the type of gun. Handguns and automatic weapons are made to kill PEOPLE and should be removed from the general population. All the guns on the streets and in the pockets of people like YOU and not one of the psychos has been stopped. Its got to stop, your right to carry a gun made to kill people stops at my baby being killed by one of those damn weapons of killing. Carry your shotgun into church if it makes you feel like a real man. I can see your shotgun and have time to react to your stupidity.

With this kind of thinking we are doomed! If we loose our rights to own guns we become helpless. We are heading to socialist government where we have no rights at all. Do you not listen when they say the NEW WORLD ORDER, this scares me to death. The government probably trained this guy to do it so they can use the crime to take our guns away. The government should fear us not us fear them! We need to take our government back real soon or we are all doomed! Go on u tube and watch the videos on micro chips in flue shots and the one on the governments plans to decrease the worlds population to five hundred thousand. We don't have a clue on what is going to happen, but I think I will keep my gun. To the person on using a knife, you could kill a lot of people with a knife if their is no one to stop you. Their are plenty of ways to kill people, a small bomb in a room would kill a lot of people. Their are videos on how to make them. If you have a hand gun you better keep it!

You are a one scary human and THE reason we need to get certain firearms off the streets to protect our children from nuts like yourself. You don't know anything about China and have no idea what Socialism really is. You & others like you are the reason Romney lost to Obama. If people like you would just grown up and shut up with your insane ideas and beliefs Romney would soon be President. NOBODY wants to take our guns, ONLY the ones a killer uses, handguns and automatic weapons. Even a child can run from a knife, not so with a bullet.
You believe that the government killed those children so they would have another excuse to take your guns. And the scary thing is you really believe that crap. All the children killed in the last few years is OK, just so you can carry a handgun to protect yourself from your demons. The fact that you are "scared" of your goverment proves you are a spineless idiot and feel the need to carry a gun in your pocket because you have no balls, no common sense and zero intellect.

Guns don't kill. People have to pull the trigger. Drugs kill more people than guns. Why don't you get on the get drugs off the street campaign.

What a f'in idiot you are!!! Let me guess - you voted for Obama??
Go to the FBI website and look up statistics about guns and see how many IDIOTS and crimes have been stopped by someone carrying a gun and proper concealed weapons permits. Guns were not made to kill people - guns were made to protect people!! There is a big difference!! Yes - there are crazy lunatics out there that get off on murdering innocent people with guns. But, no matter if guns are all taken off the street - these types of people will find a way to gain access to them! This young man who did this shooting yesterday was refused a gun sale at the gun store earlier in the week and yet he still gained access to one. Where there is a will - there is and always will be a way!
I take my gun to church and every other place that I go but it is not a shotgun - it is a 38 revolver! My pastor is packing too!! Our church voted and agreed that it was safer in todays society to be protected instead of being a victim!
And - any day anyone wants to see what damage a shotgun will do - they are welcome to come on over and try coming into my house! But, fair warning....if my shotgun don't stop them - my 9mm will be brought out.

The guy that murdered the children broke out the front glass of the school. He killed the principal as she lunged at him. If anyone in the front office had a gun they could have stopped or at least wounded him. And, just read where the Obama administration took away millions to schools for security programs and policemen. Obama shares some blame. Lock and load people! Look up where the homeland security purchased thousands of rounds that are used for killing, not practice shooting. Be prepared! Buy ammo soon before you can't. You will need it.

Will Fox News push for gun control in the coming weeks?

As strange as it may sound, it might well happen.

Rupert Murdoch has called for a ban on assault weapons and what Rupert Murdoch wants, Fox News backs 100%.

Highly unlikely, bordering on fantasy! Lanza had the element of surprise. The bastard took out the adults who confronted him first, which eliminated all resistance, and the rest was over in a matter of minutes, not enough time for a surviving (armed) adult to access the situation, engage the shooter(s) and neutralize him or them. You see it done in the movies, but it doesn't happen that way in real life.

if the front office personnel were armed they could have stopped him. When someone breaks out your windows you know they are not in a joking mood.

Picture yourself in the front office of an elementary school, say the one here; You're busy working. There are other people talking. Phones are ringing. Maybe you hear the sound of something (glass), breaking - somewhere in the building. That happens. Kids make noise. People drop things (especially in the cafeteria). You ask the person next to you if they heard something. You don't hear it again. Should you decide to investigate anyway, the last thing you'd expect is to be confronted by an armed lunatic so it would be illogical you'd draw your weapon, chamber a round and prepare yourself (mentally) to engage in a firefight....

What happened in Newtown could happen anywhere, even here, at any time and sad to say, there's no realistic way it can be prevented short of turning all schools into jails.

one was killed when confronting the killer as he entered a broken glass panel. Gun shots are very noisy. This was not ordinary noise of a school. Training is paramount dealing with episodes like this one. Schools need to be prepared. How many more killings will it take to wise up school officials and our government ? We have a sick society that has turned from god. It will continue as long as we as a nation continue to erode our morals and principals.

Horse shit, the U.S. tops all countries in the world due to handgun death. Why because anyone can get one, two or twenty two and the only use for a hand gun it to kill someone. A couple of facts to offset you load of crap.

Last Year alone people KILLED by Hand Guns by country:

48 killed people in Japan
8 killed people in Great Britain
34 people killed in Switerland
52 people killed in Canada
58 people killed in Israel
21 people killed in Sweden
42 people killed in W. Germany
10,728 people KILLED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN

Are we just an EVIL country, I hope not but sometimes wonder. But the fact is that the number of people killed is directly related to the number of handguns in the population. You and the NRA can make all the baseless claims you want, but the facts speak for themselves, handguns kill.

After reading your post I have decided we are an evil country. The simple act of going to church doesn't make you a good person, that includeds your pastor.
