    Just Play,

    I am so sick over once again a senseless killing of innocent people, children this time. My heart breaks for the parents.

    I would say that most schools in my area of Texas are now 'lock down' schools. There is a guard house where you have to check in before driving onto the campus, plus a guard on duty in the school itself. But if you wanted in, you could get in no matter what precautions are taken.

    It makes you want to homeschool your kids and never let them out of the house.

    Are we not safe anywhere?

    OMG I am so sick to hear about this here in Connecticut.
    My prayers go out to all involved.
    Why oh why do sick SOB's do this.

    At least 26 dead in shooting at Connecticut elementary school
    DEVELOPING: Authorities say at least 26 people, including 18 children, were killed Friday when a gunman clad in black military gear opened fire inside a Connecticut elementary school.
    A law enforcement official said the shooter, who is dead, was from New Jersey and had ties to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Authorities recovered a Glock and Sig Sauer 9mm handgun, but it was unclear who killed the shooter, who wore black combat garb and a military vest.
    Local news outlets report that the shooting occurred inside a kindergarten classroom, and that all the pupils in that classroom are unaccounted for.
    An official with knowledge of the situation said the 20-year-old gunman, whose name has not been released, also had a .223-caliber rifle. The motive is not yet known.
    Police are also questioning another man in connection with the shooting. Witnesses told the Connecticut Post that a handcuffed man, dressed in camouflage, was led out of a nearby woods by officers.
    Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance said during an afternoon news conference that police arrived at the scene "within minutes" of a 911 call placed shortly after 9:30 a.m.

    I am too. No parent should ever have to go through this!

    That's what I was saying about our schools here as well, if you want to get in, it's pretty easy.

    There wasn't much of this kind of thing when my 22 year old was growing up, there was a few of course, but it's so different for my 10 year old.

    Kids should be able to be kids, run around, laugh, have fun...not worry about if they are going to get shot!!!

    Prayers to all that have suffered...umimaginable pain.

    Apparently he shot and killed someone at his home in NJ....I heard it was his mother, not sure though.

    I think also to start a separate thread about the politics of gun laws. I haven't been this physically sick since 9/11 over the traqic loss of human life. 20 little innocent angels need our thoughts as do the innocent adults who perished today.

    My son who is home from school due to medical reasons saw me crying today. He is 13. He asked why are you crying I was physically Ill when I saw the news. So bad my blood pressure dropped and I had heart palpitations. When I regained my composure he asked me again. I said as a mom you hurt and feel for all children but you hurt the worst for your own. Then I had to go pick my 10 year old daughter up from school. I sat her down and said tonight you may see some very graphic horrific and disturbing images on TV and internet. I explained what happened all she kept saying was the same as I. They were just babies. Why would some one hurt them. Once again I had to say the honest truth honey no one will ever know that answer. If we did these things would never happen. I was a police officer as well and I truly feel for the first responders there lives will never be the same. Today not only were 20 families of children destroyed but also every man and women that responded to that scene will carry that memory with them. This is horrific, words and tears can never show the emotion I and others feel right now. Our country has a bad habit of dealing with tragedy but never learning from it. MY only words I can say is MAY MY GOD HOLD THOSE CHILDREN IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND.

    I hope they hang the pictures of these children in every NRA office in America- GUNS KILL and I don't really care if you disagree- these were children.

    I hope they spread this mans body parts on every bridge from CT to CA so every other wacko is made aware that enough is enough.

    Now that these children are angels lets pray that they may change our world for the better and save someones life. Something good out of such destruction.

    As unimaginable as it is, a mass shooting has again occurred. I think the most heart wrenching is that 20 little angels with their lives ahead of them are no more.

    No words can console anyone involved.

    From my heart, my thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone affected.

    Imo I find the people that complete stunts like this are the sane ones as they realise whats coming to them after the event-EG electric chair,injection.life without parole.They know the rest of their lives won't be worth living.

    Its the insane ones that don't think about after the event.

    I agree.......

    Heard the news this morning at work. Made me sick to my stomach. Completely put a damper on our work Christmas party. My prayers are with those that lost loved ones. You can't even send your kids to school without fearing you may never see them again. Just gross.

    My Heart goes out to all the families who have lost loved ones today.

    Let's hope that out of respect for the children lost today our politicians quit squabbling over the fiscal cliff issue and get on with something far more important, Protecting every child in the US from this ever happening again, whatever it takes.

    It just occured to me, that just seeing the news on TV, that some of the children, may have already have their own private family trauma before this and then this?

    I just pray for these 'survivors' that they can receive help...Can you imagine that a little child having already a 'trauma' in their life, and this?

    One never knows.

    It is bigger than we know for these little survivors..

    This is for sure,this is the one event that will stand out in their minds well into their teens unfortunately.

    People always put fears down to something like a bad experience they had when they were younger ie the dentist.For me I can handle any spider or snake,however show me a needle and I'm in trouble.Only because I had a bad experience as a kid.

    Feel hugely sorry for them-must be an awful night to try to sleep.

    The last words of 'Brian' scribbled upon a crinkled piece of paper whilst hidden in a cupboard apparantly aged 6 before he died.Otherwise known as the note that made me actually cry a little (I'm a UK bloke-that doesnt happen)

    "I love you mom,I am happy and (unsure word) sorry for not being a good son and not being a happy son-if I ever was-I love you in heaven"

    I am not a parent but don't tell me you cannot imagine this poor kid being your kid somewhere in America.And do not tell me you then still support the legalisation of guns.

    Yet another reason why nobody can assume their family would never do such a thing.

    If everybody did that......

    Such a shame to see lifes snuffed out like that so young :( .

    Very few mass gun shootings i can remember in Australia and the last time we did have one the government really tightened the screws on ownership.

    Drive by shootings at homes has been pretty frequent of late downunder courtesy of all the thug gangbangers/bikies kicking up a stink in drug wars.

    I dont chime in on other countries rules, what works for one place may not work for another.
