Quote from a teacher:
Hero teacher Kaitlin Roig tells ABC News that she barricaded her first grade students in classroom bathroom and locked the door when she first heard gun shots. “The kids were being so good. They asked: ‘Can we go see if anyone is out there? … I just want Christmas… I don’t want to die, I just want to have Christmas.’ I said, you’re going to have Christmas and Hanukkah.. I tried to be positive.”

i agree with you, and also just like millions others want it not to happen anymore. but to make that happen, we need to find the couse of the problem, not go after means (guns), but all we do is that , going after guns, and that gets us no where. pretty much a fact. we fail everytime we do it, yet there are planty of ppl that want to do it again, doing something useless takes you away from doing something usefull.

The problem is, the means(guns) are way too damn effective killing tools. That's their sole purpose. I wish we could go after the cause, but as long as humans have existed we've created artificial hells on earth that drives ppl insane.

I was told the brother was the one hiding in the woods nearby.

  Theres just so much conflicting information right now. The link ive provided is of the local news live feed in Newtown, CT. Alot of what im hearing and seeing there is different than whats being put out on the national media.

Why do you assume the MEDS are the problem? Sure some meds can be a problem if they are abused or if the illness is over diagnosed, but in most of these cases the problem is because the person was NOT TAKING their meds. The illness is the problem, not the meds... Is there anyone here on meds or in the health care industry?

Separate Thread for this one, Kev...  I don't want to hijack.

What a horrible tragedy. Pisses me off. wtf wtfwtf This is one of the few things I envy about Japan and China. They have a very, very strict gun ban. Just yesterday some guy in China went crazy with a knife at a elementary school. 20 something kids injured but zero killed.

Holy crap, you brought up a point that I missed earlier. People argued that without guns this type of thing would still happen and used that example...I forgot they left out the fact that no one died...

Events like this sicken me. I have three granddaughters about the ages of those kids, and I can barely imagine the horror and grief the parents and grandparents are going through. You guys with your politics and conspiracy theories need to turn off the bile for a day or two.

While we're tackling the cause, might as well try to reduce the means as well.

How many non-gun related tragedies have happened lately?
They happen all the time.  They just donít get plastered on the nightly news.  Locally in the news, I just heard that the medical examiner released a report on the death of a toddler that was claimed to have died accidently.  I was determined that the child died from blunt force trauma, i.e. murder.  Both incidents take away a part of me.
