School Shooting: Grief mixes with impatience in shattered Newtown

Dec 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Daily Times

Mourners overlapped at back-to-back services as funerals began in earnest in a Connecticut town that lost 20 of its children and seven adults to a gunman, with emotions and tempers in tatters amid a global crush of media attention to a community once known mostly for its bucolic atmosphere and sterling school system.

Let's agree and move on with hope, as a united country, to secure our country and our children (the future) with gun control and funding for mental health.

We the People, as PATRIOTIC AMERICANS must demand that Congress act RIGHT NOW and focus its FULL ATTENTION on gun control and mental health care to honor the innocent six-year-olds killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Let's not dwell on the past when we did nothing or nothing good enough. Let's make sure our children never have to endure another Christmas as painful as this one is, because we, as adults, did nothing, again.

Enough bickering about fiscal cliffs and Benghazi, let's get it done, like adults, and focus what really matters, OUR CHILDREN.

*sigh*

Gun control will not stop anything. You are looking in the wrong place. Should be looking at the drugs these shooters are on. These drugs that alter the brains chemistry and have some serious violent side effects.

Government cannot keep you and your family safe. The only person that can do that is you.

The governments plan to keep you save is to make you a prisoner. Dwight D Eisenhower once said, "If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking... is freedom. "

Radical Republicans don't want to pay for mental healthcare.

I'm tired of all you shills for greedy gun manufacturers who don't give a rat's booty about our children. Guns do not make us safer. Lanza's mother is the proof. Her legally-owned guns were used to kill her and 20 children. Arming teachers with more guns is definitely not the answer.

We've even had gunmen go into police stations and start shooting up the places, same for Fort Hood. All the armed police and soldiers were helpless. Moreover, none of the armed citizens helped to stop the massacre that hit Congresswoman Giffords and killed other children. STOP defending the greedy radicals in the NRA who hate the police and don't care about our children.

Police find no evidence Connecticut gunman was on medication

Published December 18, 2012

FoxNews.com

Dec. 16, 2012: The car driven by Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is towed from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.(Reuters)

While Newtown buried two more young victims Tuesday in the shooting massacre, authorities said they found no evidence the gunman who killed 27 people was being medicated for mental illness.

Investigators searching the Connecticut home gunman Adam Lanza shared with his mother, Nancy Lanza, seized cellphones, computers and computer games, but found nothing at the residence to indicate he was taking medication, Hearst Connecticut Newspapers reported.

And still you do not look at the common theme to all of the shootings. The common theme that everyone of these people are on some form of mind altering drug.

You accuse me of being a shill for gun manufacturers. Actually, that is incorrect. Analytically looking at it, the root cause is the same. the drugs that have some serious side effects that alter the brain's chemistry.

So if I am shill for the gun manufacturers, then you must be a shill for Big Pharma.

Accusations get you no where. And that is the basis of your entire argument.

He WAS homeschooled, by his dumb mother who was killed by him with her legally owned guns. Then he went on a shooting rampage that included the killing of 20 six-year-olds. Don't they give you any facts on FUX News?

Clearly the talking points today are that the media should stop coverage of this news. It's not a time to FORGET, again. It's a time to ACT.

Like these FACTS, for example:

"Studies show that a gun in a family's home is 12 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO RESULT IN THE DEATH OF HOUSEHOLD MEMBER than of an intruder.

"It also increases the chance of suicide.

"...the facts...dispel the ILLUSION THAT GUNS MAKE YOU SAFER."

Correct...but if your kid is being homeschooled, then he or she won't be at the next school that a crazy person shoots up.

So..........you want the government to come in and take all semiautomatic weapons from the public. Complete disarm right?

How can you expect a government to protect you when the exact same government is shipping fully automatic weapons into Mexico and Syria? If the government is going to look at restricting guns, they should restrict themselves. Oh wait, that is not going to happen, they will turn them on us first.

Do you even own a gun? If so, what kind? I bet it is a semi-auto. Which means they will take it away from you.

You want security? If you get government security, you might as well be in prison, because you will lose your freedom at the same time.

“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.”......Thomas Jefferson.

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."......Benjamin Franklin

"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."....Thomas Paine.

Think about those for a little bit. And then ask yourself, can government protect you, or, is it your responsibility to protect yourself and your family?

If you are going to spew your B/S about Fort Hood maybe you would like to know what you are talking about.The soldiers were NOT ARMED,it was a "gun free zone"they were in.Maybe if they were armed the muslim murder would have been taken out before he killed as many as he did.Do your homework before you run off with your liberal talking points Zippy.

I guess the NRA is desperately waiting and hoping Lanza was on drugs for his mental disorder. Sorry, NRA, no scapegoats for now.
