Just a little bit of trivia for ya, Newtown was also home to the "Woodchipper Murder" back in the 1980s.

Carry on.

Facebook and Twitter are going nuts because the Media are interviewing the children.

I could be wrong but I dont think they can't interview a child on camera with out a mother or father allowing it.  If that true then I would be more pissed at them for allowing it than the media.

Sorry, but I feel the need to reiterate: we need to make guns harder to get, somehow. And Bob Costas' editorial was on the fucking money, no matter how many "Here's how many people are killed by cars" or "here's how many children got knifed in China" statistics someone cares to throw out. Is the DON'T TAKE AWAY MY GUNS lobby going to suggest arming fucking teachers and students?

Don't tell me "This isn't the time," either. Yes, it fucking is.

I think another contributing factor to these incidents is that the criminal justice system does not adequately deal with criminals with mental defects. If a person is found guilty of a crime but is found to be mentally defective, he is often given a shorter prison sentence (if the sentence is not suspended entirely) and then mandated to complete some sort of mental health counseling / treatment. Sadly, the mental health system is just as broken as the criminal justice system and the offender typically skates through it or is somehow lost in the system.

Often times, the people who commit these crimes have had previous run-ins with the law or have been identified as potential dangers by others (school teachers, neighbors, etc.). Sadly, even if they commit a crime, it is hard to protect society from them.  


Absolutely.

Focusing on the gun control issue solely is lazy. The core issue lies wayyy farther upstream and I can't believe it's taken 30+ tragedies like this since Columbine for the public to even begin to think about the mental health crisis in our country that public health professionals have been struggling with for decades.

As for the guns issue...these mass murders are committed with an ever-growing number of guns and clips capable of inflicting mass damage, weapons that--whether or not they were legally obtained--are produced for a market that places a high demand for them. And I think we need to have a national discussion/referendum about that, regardless of the consequences.

I would wholeheartedly agree with this except for one, simple fact.

If you make guns harder to get, it's not going to affect these gun runners. It's not going to affect gang bangers. It's not going to affect terrorists. It's only going to affect normal people whom are trying to use guns responsibly to protect their families and property.

Guns could be completely outlawed and I could almost promise that gun violence won't go down. The only death rate that would go down from this is legitimate 'self defense' cases.




I'm not advocating no guns, but at least make them harder to get and is it now time to ban automatic weapons?

I am living in West Germany? Dang.

What can I say but statistics don't lie.

To contribute to this thread I post a question that has been bugging me: If I move to the US, would I be safer with a gun? I am undecided.

I understand these facts but most of these countries have more common sense than the US in a critical aspect.

The mobs in most of these countries realize that if criminals go around shooting others, the police will start handling the situation accordingly and the mob would not want that at all. Henceforth, the mobs will cut any stupid activities off at the pass if they are able to catch wind of them.

Lots of conflicting information now coming to light.  Number of caualties in question now.  may be more, may be less.  The shooter may be the brother of the person they named as the shooter.  Bottom line, they don't know for sure.

If you were properly trained, I'd say yes.

Pro Gun or Anti Gun Control people can agree that their "whose dick is bigger" pissing match means little compared to what happened to those families today.  In the end, if this fucker wanted to cause mass harm he would have.  Did you guys miss the story of 22 kids wounded at a Chinese school by a guy with a knife?

confirmed: 27 dead including shooter, 20 kids.  Police would not confirm the identity of the shooter.

Here we go......two people on TV blaming this happened because they took God and prayer out of school.   I am not sure how I feel about that whole issue, but I just do not know if that would have impacted me that much when I was in high school.  So, they are basically saying if these two kids were forced to pray when they were in school this would never have occurred.

I'd say let the hysteria begin, but it's too late for that.  I swear some people hope that tragedies like this will happen so they can make their political point.  From gun control to prayer in school to violent video games to rap music to global warming, everything will be blamed for this by the end of the day.  Everyone can make their silly little arguments so they can feel good about themselves, and in the meantime a couple dozen families are going to have the most hellish Christmas imaginable when they have to look at those unopened presents.  The only person to blame is the shooter and I wish I believed in hell when I hear stories like this.  As ridiculous as the concept of hell is, it's so unfair if someone like this shooter winds up in the same place as the kids he killed.
