Oh yeah, please make it go away. Pretend it didn't happen, right? After all, it's took place last Friday, two news cycles ago?

Those liberals just want an excuse to take away guns.

Agreed.

Somewhere in America a gun dealer is mourning the loss of a lucrative customer who was killed by her own guns.

"On Friday morning, Lanza shot Nancy in the face at the home they shared in Newtown, and then drove her car to Sandy Hook Elementary School. Dressed in black combat gear, the 20-year-old broke a window at the school, which had recently had a new security system installed, and within minutes had shot and killed six adults and 20 schoolchildren between the ages of five and 10.

Police said Lanza used a Bushmaster semiautomatic assault-style rifle to kill the children before using a handgun to take his own life. Officials said the guns were likely legally purchased by Nancy.

Officials told ABC News that computers removed from Lanza's family home over the weekend provide important clues into Lanza's twisted thinking."

There were hundreds of rounds still in the gun. So it looks like we were lucky, so to speak. The killer was not able to continue to exercise his 2nd Amendment rights.

they weren't just guns...some were weapons of war. yes, cars kill people, but we don't see tanks being allowed to be driven on the streets of america. wake up people. i would never trample on the constitution, but maybe the 2nd amendment needs amending!

The amendment is fine. What is broken is that high capacity military style weaponry is finding its way into the general public. People can't own and operate bazookas, predator drones, F-18's, tanks, howitzers, tomahawk missiles and weaponized lasers so why is OK for them to own military firearms?

Um, no, he was too mentally ill to get the guns for himself. So he got them from his mother who got them legally. Then he killed her. Good luck to you with your guns.

a shotgun with buckshot would kill 10 times more than an a so called semi-automatic assault rifle,especially in a school situation--
