The gunman, believed to be 20, walked into a classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire, killing 20 students in two classrooms. He also fatally shot six other adults, then killed himself inside the school. One other person was injured in the shooting.

At the gunman’s home in Newtown, the police found the body of his mother, a teacher at the school, who had also been shot dead.

A law enforcement official identified the assailant as Adam Lanza and said that a brother, Ryan Lanza, had been questioned. Adam Lanza was wearing combat gear when he entered the school, the official said.

The school shooting is the second deadliest in American history, after the 2007 massacre at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, which claimed 32 lives.

President Obama, speaking on national television Friday afternoon, appeared to break down several times as he spoke of the crime.“The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old,” he said.

After pausing to compose himself for 12 long seconds, Mr. Obama went on,“They had their entire lives ahead of them: birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.”

Then the president wiped the corner of his eye.

Since all these massacres occur in the Western countries by Westerners, the answer is crystal clear.
