I thought there was 2. One was dead and then there is the other one...or was that corrected?

One confirmed gunman(now dead) and another suspicious person found and arrested by police in the nearby woods dressed in camo. No report at this time if that person was also a shooter or even had a gun.
Likely connected though, of course.

Don't even insinuate I'm a Republican.. You might as well stereotyped; I find that disrespectful.

I'm a political independent. I'm simply observing that this incident, as horrible as it is, will be used to further someone's agendas out there. You don't have to be a Democrat, or a Republican, or an Independent to figure that one out.. I'm sure I'm going to be further criticized for not acknowledging those kids deaths in every single one of my posts. I've spent the past hour, after finding out these kids deaths, praying for these kids - and I am not a religious person. I understand history, our Constitution, and our government well. I just chose not to repeat the last eight pages of posts.

No, you do not understand the Second Amendment, what it means or how it came about. Nor do you understand the power of the president in our system and his ability to change the system we live in.

This article pissed me off:

Connecticut school shooting: Lawmakers offer prayers amid calls for gun control


Quote

Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York called for a “serious discussion about gun control.”
“Yet another unstable person has gotten access to firearms and committed an unspeakable crime against innocent children,” Nadler said in a statement.

*snip* You think this is the time to start pushing your politics? I'm tired of people blaming the guns instead of blaming the sick **** that would kill a bunch of kids. I'm only sorry the killer couldn't live to see the long, painful death he deserves.

I fear that in the coming weeks that events like this will be more likely. As we are 6 days out from "The end of the world" such events will more than likely be on the rise. I am waiting to hear who the gunman was and what, if any, connection he may have truely had to the school. Everything is only speculation at this point.

I wondered about that as well, seems every nut job on the planet has came out this year.

Yeah, what the hell. can't even begin to understand why someone would do this.

  • Such an ugly feeling that won't leave.

Posted 14 December 2012 - 08:10 PM

There is a deeper root problem within society that is causing these shootings. It should be discovered. I believe it is simply the inability to connect to others. Social bonds are being destroyed on all fronts by the march of progress. It began with industrialization and continues with modern social networking. The signs are all over, the animals are increasing on the highway, don't become one. These mass shootings are just ultimate expressions of that. Try holding a door open for someone in the city and get dirty looks or confusion from the person you are trying to help. Try proper introductions with many youths and stopping to get someone's name and say hi is a concept completely foreign to them.

No, you do not understand the Second Amendment, what it means or how it came about. Nor do you understand the power of the president in our system and his ability to change the system we live in.

Gary Johnson.

The second amendment is meant to be the safeguard of our Republic. My family fought in the American Revolution. I have a picture of the Minute Battalion of Culpeper County, Virginia on the wall directly above me... I'm a member of the Sons of the American Revolution... My family has fought in every major war. Do not insult me.

We have arms in order to defend our freedoms - which either come from our humanity, or come from our government - which side of the argument indicates your political views... We have arms in order to redress our government if we deem it fit - to abolish the power of those who do not do their job..

When people are going to talk about gun changes - which they will after this horrendous incident, legislation will be on the minds of some. The UN already has been on America's ass about restricting the sales of assault rifles.

Again, you don't need to be a genius to figure this out.

I rather not make this topic about politics, so I will relent here. Let's save this topic for the mourning of those poor souls departed from this earth on this terrible, terrible morning.
