Columbine, Virginia Tech, Colorado, and now an elementary school. When is going to be the time to talk about gun control? It's sad when a person has better access to guns than healthcare. These people should not be able to purchase guns used by military and police forces. They need psychiatric HELP.
When the 2nd amendment was written, guns were single shot muskets that took at least 15 seconds to load, and that's if they were fast. When is the time people? How many more innocent people have to die before actions are taken? It makes me sick. These kids will never see Christmas again, and their parents will never see them again. I can't imagine the pain they are trying to endure right now.
You can't go to the movies, the mall, or even school without fear of being shot. It's time to WAKE UP people.

This is so so sad. I am sickened for these families that have to endure the pain of their lose.
I am a gun owning citizen and will continue to own guns. A ban on guns will have no effect on what a crazy person will do if he so decides to kill a bunch of people. If I'm not mistaken there is a ban on such weapons in the state of Conneticut. The ban doesnt work. We need to have some way of recognizing mental illness and dealing with people as such better rather than banning guns. I'm sure you will hear in the very near future that he showed signs of being unstable. Well you get what we had here today. A disgusting cowardly act that can't be undone.
Nobody screams about banning the automobiles that are involved in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people when a drunk gets behind the wheel. I know multiple drunk drivers that have numerous conviction s and are STILL able to get behind the wheel and drive drunk. Drunks and cars have killed more innocent and unsuspecting people in this country than nuts with guns 10 times over. People are being killed by drunk drivers somewhere in this country as you read this.
I cannot fathom the grief of the families that this vicious attack are suffering. The prays of a Nation go out unto you all.

I have kids who may be able to go to school next year, definitely the year after, and reading this just makes me think twice about not opting for home schooling. It's so sad, a bunch of helpless, defenseless kids slain for nothing.

I've owned guns in the past, and will have a new one come next tax season, and I've never once wanted to hurt another with one. Guns are capable of killing, but it takes a person to make it do that. A clod of dirt can kill, so trying to push a ban on weapons won't do a thing.

I wish we knew why people do the things they do, or how the come down to do things this way. Those kids had nothing to do with the problem, so why hurt them? The man's own mother was shot, which makes me wonder if it started somewhere within his family/home. There were other bodies found, including his brother, which only further confirms my suspicions that this started with something at home, and probably could have been prevented.

I feel so bad for the parents of those children, and for the families of the rest of those killed. This whole country needs a reform, and dealing with guns is only a small and minor issue.

But, on a side note, anyone had their MK ultra this morning? Sometimes, these things seem to surreal to not have been planned...

When the hell are you people going to wake up and realize the government is the mastermind behind all these shootings?! In order to totally take over this country the 2nd amendment has to be done away with. Can't take control of an armed people. This was planned and watch in the next few days or weeks they will attempt to ban all firearms

I don't think the american people will stand up for that though, especially West Virginians, Ohioans, and Nevadians(or is it nevadanites?). If they try it, it will make just another issue to deal with. I think the real problems is a lot deeper than gun control. Our laws, practices, and methods (or lack thereof) needs to be looked at and reformed. The problem is is that those things change from community to community, let alone on a city, state, or federal level. Our country is just a mess right now.

As far as government involvement, I've seen some things in my life that if it turned out that the government was involved, I wouldn't be shocked.

This was just plan EVIL!!! Guns do not fire without a finger on the trigger. They can not load themselves. Wake up people. Things are getting worse every day. Good people need their guns to protect themselves against EVIL people.

Think about this, if even one teacher had a gun could that idiot have taken 25 lives? He knew he would meet no resistance, because just like God, guns are not allowed in schools. Now I am not saying Teachers should carry guns, but doing away with all of the guns will not solve the problem.

Think most are missing the point! The school had a security system installed the day prior to prevent nut jobs like this from walking into the place and shooting it up! Had someone actually done their damn job this asshole would've been standing outside the school with his dick in his hand with the cops on the way! Instead, he shot the school up and after the fact someone decided to alarm the security system to cover their ass because the cops had to bust out windows to even enter the school because it was locked down like it should have been in the first place!

Just saying ... whoever was in charge of alarming the security system screwed up bigtime!

Guns ain't the problem,it's the crazy people getting ahold of em!! Instead of gun control,we need people control! Criminals and psychos will always get guns! If teachers have guns or armed guards were at schools the death toll would've been down,prolly not even one kill if we would've had a armed policeman there! If everyone carried a gun,these people might rethink! Guns protect in my house,so leave the gun control alone!! Work on the sercruty at schools,malls,ect.!

one thing for sure if this keeps up we will have more gun control the gun grabbers are just waiting for something like this to happen i bet if you knew the truth they are very happy that this happen like that dam mayor of NYC and that Hillery Clinton and all the rest of them kind of people hard to tell what will come out of this but one thing for sure if they take our guns we are screw big time and that shooter was a nut case hell he took his mom out first and the trouble is there are a lot of people like him right here in WV between being a nut and drugs no wonder this world is going to hell in a hand basket with out guns we will live on our knees but as you know most people are like followers they will go along with what ever and just bitch and will do no more even they will learn but it will be to late by then if more people had guns and knew how to use them and would use them then it would be a better place because no body would take the chance of getting shot for a joint or drugs people talk but when the clips are down most would do nothing i know they say they would but that all just talk i takes a lot to kill yes kill a man always shot to kill because if you don:t he will kill you in the end never pull a gun and point it at anyone you don:t want to kill i hope this blow over lets hope so like the man said guns don:t kill people - people do...

BINGO...now getting all these anti-gun people to step down from their soapbox and do something REAL, instead of do good, feel good, warm and fuzzy logic. You know what this is about. They want a disarmed public. It's been proven over and over again what this will lead to. If gun control is the answer, why are the violent "gun" crime statistics so much higher in areas with the strictest laws? Washington, DC and Chicago for example.
