Unbelievable

Good God. At least 20 dead, including 10 children.

*Edit* Now the AP is saying 18 children dead.

I live pretty close to Newtown and some friends of mine have kids that go to Sandy Hook. This is awful.

Smiling Assassin27 12-14-2012 11:25 AM

Hug your kids tonight. This is absolutely horrific.

Br0nc0Buster 12-14-2012 11:28 AM

Has there been an increase in shootings, or is there just more coverage on them?

Wasnt there just a mall shooting like a week ago?

****

Heyneck 12-14-2012 11:28 AM

awful... just awful! All from the range from 5-10. Sick ****ing people!!!

gunns 12-14-2012 11:28 AM

It happens so often anymore it seems we are getting numb. But when it's kids it really strikes your heart. And this close to Christmas makes it even sadder. Just so depressing.

Finger Roll 12-14-2012 11:33 AM

I live about 20 minutes away and have cousins who went to that school.

RedskinBronco 12-14-2012 11:34 AM

unreal, you cannot go anywhere anymore.

SouthStndJunkie 12-14-2012 11:37 AM

What a ****ing chicken****....why would you shoot innocent children like that?

Boobs McGee 12-14-2012 11:38 AM

****ing people. This is just so sick and unnecessary. Prayers/thoughts to all involved

gunns 12-14-2012 11:40 AM

They are saying it's a parent. A 20 year old

12-14-2012 11:41 AM

why, God?

DAN_BRONCO_FAN 12-14-2012 11:41 AM

wtf is wrong with some people these days . those are children.
has the world gone insane???

12-14-2012 11:43 AM

This is just so sad. I am starting to believe that mandatory mental evaluation might be needed to purchase a gun in the future. I own guns and love them but we really need to start looking at different solutions.

Yeah, allegedly two shooters, one in custody and the other dead. Multiple shooters could point to something like a terrorist act.

They could do a lot of things to ensure that crazy people don't get guns. Unfortunately, they don't. I'd venture to say that there is a good portion of people who own a firearm that aren't trained well enough or have a good reason to have them other than trying to be "tough." This story is absolutely tragic. All incidents like this are, but these are little kids. Innocent to the world. Sad. Prayers for all.

Ya think?

Broncomutt 12-14-2012 11:48 AM

I'm was on the phone with a client in Connecticut from 11am to 11:30 this morning. In the background I heard a fire truck go by, then another, then another, then another, with what sounded like ambulances or police cars as well. Lasted the entire 30 minute conversation.

I asked jokingly if a nuclear bomb had gone off or something. He said he didn't know. I wonder if it was the response to this ****?

So sad.

It's the end-result of a culture that embraces violence as a positive quality. We fight wars and wave flags. Our biggest movies are *about* violence. Our video games are by and large *about* violence. When I think about the world I was raised in, it's stunning.

So you put someone who is mentally on edge in that culture and then give them easy access to guns. What happens next is no surprise.

razorwire77 12-14-2012 11:51 AM

I really try to view humanity in a positive light, but days like today make it hard.

12-14-2012 11:52 AM

crazy people happen. you've probably met an untold number of psychos over your lifetime. I'd personally DQ many from maintaining a firearm, but that's not gonna happen so the question turns to what can I do to protect myself and my loved ones from the inevitable loons I meet in society?

plus mental evaluations are notoriously subjective. there's no acid test for sanity.

I'm not really a fan of this line of thought. it's like when people blamed Marilyn Manson for Columbine. the ****ers who shot up the place are the responsible party. you start singling out peripheral causes and pretty much the whole of human existence is on the table.

LonghornBronco 12-14-2012 11:56 AM

Crazy ****ed up world we live in!

Our culture does embrace violence. It is a FACT.
