Filthy gun hating democRats and their drum beating media cohorts are using the corpses of little kids in a sleazy attempt to turn law abiding Americans into servants with no means to resist tyranny or crime.
Make no mistake about it the voice-vote crowd are as sick minded as the perp. After all they did reelect a jackass who was mentored for years by bill ayers the deranged communist terrorist with a mile long criminal rap sheet. Based on that standard democRats might as well be cheering holmes, loughner et al because they are along the lines of bill ayers.
The fact is all their silly Gun Free Zone signs and feel-good security measures failed to keep a lowly 20 year old murderous twit out of a school. Obviously schools should not have windows that can be breached. That’s a no-brainer in the story of the Three Little Pigs so rest assured lawyers are going to have a field day.
Anytime you place yourself or your loved ones in the hands of people who in reality are only an illusion of safety then you are without doubt asking for trouble. So basically what killed those little kids was political correctness. The political correctness that prevented and discouraged any of the adults present the means to return fire and protect the innocent.
What you see on TV and coming out of b. h. obama’s lying marxist piehole is nothing but excuses for their utter incompetence. Incompetence with supplying 2000 untraceable weapons to drug dealers in Mexico, incompetence in Libya on 9/11, incompetence on Christmas Day a few years ago when an underwear bomber tried to blow up a passenger plane over Detroit, etc.
Never surrender your means to defend yourself and your loved ones to a bunch of political slugs who will be nowhere to be found especially when some perp who just put 4 rounds in the face of his sleeping mother goes on a rampage.

If the gun makers are frowned upon, imagine how the public schools are being scrutinized. It is always at a public school where these incidents seem to always take place. Maybe home schooling is the answer to a lot of our problems. Why keep children all bundled up in one place where they are susceptible to the whims of a madman? But if our kids are 25th in math and science now, how are they to teach their kids? Hmm. I think I see a pattern emerging now designed for public union teacher job security. Soon they will be armed like Swiss border guards.
America's problems are running much deeper now after this horrible incident on top of the mishandling of Benghazi and the wild spending by the drunk sailor in the White House.. I know I am very sad. My heart is breaking for my country.
It's getting worse everyday. We are doomed it seems. My time left on earth is short but my children will have to endure this horrible malaise for how long? How long? Does anyone have an answer?

It is time for this country to change; it is exactly like the President said so brilliantly at the memorial service on Sunday night, “We must change”. So many on the right will resist; but they will have no choice… kicking and screaming, or not at all, but they will come along.

Dear, I would hope that it is not only those smart Democrats who want some improvement on amerikkkkkka's gun hugging culture but also those pesky republicannots.

After all outrage and concern should not only be the concern of democrats but the whole country (apart from folks like you).

Yes, dear, our children should feel safe when are at school as they are getting an edewwwwcation, where they are learning to read, where they are learning to write and where they are learning skills important to their lives.

You know that homeschooling is not the answer but you, of all people, should be asking why this happens and what we should be doing about it.

Obama already changed us. He put us 6 trillion more in debt, and has weakened our military. You are not going to change the second ammendment and you loons that think you can have at it.

It happens because you liberals have made schools target friendly areas, just like the government has made it illegal for Americans to carry a weapon into a government building that is theirs, but the congress that made that law can and does.

What is a teachers retirement fund doing investing stock in a company(s) that manufactures the Bushmaster rifle? Ex-teachers helped to kill teachers. Get rid of your stock. Horrible. Is Freedom Works related to the GOP? We need to hunt down the money trail of these gun manufacturers and their promoters.

Somewhere in the world rich private investors in killer-guns are mourning the loss of their extra income and the death of a crazy customer who bought their crap and weapons only to be killed by her own son who then killed a couple dozen children and brave public school union teachers.

Meanwhile, our country of patriotic Americans mourn the loss of the innocent victims, their families, their friends, and our country as a whole for foolishly believing the gun hype all these years.

It may be impossible to know who is crazy, but our healthcare law should treat mental illness like any other disease and unless you are in the military (militia), you should not be able to buy military weapons.

It's time for the enablers of killers to STFU.

That's right, homeschooling is not the answer. It's the PROBLEM. The mentally ill mother of the shooter home-schooled him and, knowing he was mentally ill, kept guns and ammunition in the house and took him to the shooting range. If people want to home school, they should have at the very least, a teaching certificate for primary and secondary education.

WTF? Are we trying to race to the bottom of the world in education and common sense?

Look at all the poll results on Topix. Then look at how AMERICA VOTED. Topix is completely overrun by right-wing extremists. Thank GOD America knew better and voted for President Obama. The problem is that the states are getting pounded by Republicans who are imposing their extreme positions on us locally. They get all their money from the Koch brothers and their marching orders from ALEC.

Wake up America! They would like nothing better than to have us forget as quickly as possible about these poor dead children and the safety of all American children.

It's time to tell the NRA to STFU and force it to pay damages to all the families destroyed by gun violence. We need a class action to defund them from their corruptive lobbying.

First off Burns Your Butt, find our what an Assault weapon is. It is a fully automatic weapon and are illegal with out the federal permit. Twenty children were cut and slashed with a knife weilding sick person in China. Are you going to ban all knives. Illegals kill 3000 people a year, are we going to ban all illegals, thousands are killed by cars, are we going to ban them and finally several hundred thousands are killed every year due to abortions, are we going to ban them?
that
