    Actually, I never felt threatened at a gun show. But if someone had wanted to commit "suicide by cop," that would have been the place to do it.

    That's your solution, not mine. But it's funny that when we had shooting clubs and gun ranges in high schools across the country we didn't have this problem. Life seemed simpler back then. People went to church and we locked up the crazies.

    This is beyond heartbreaking, there are no words to express how i feel.

    RIP to all the victims and my thoughts are with their families.

    I once met and trained with a Krav Maga Israelite military trainer who said it best that when you live in Israel everyday you wake up you never know if you will have to fight.

    It is sad that our country has left the days when you could leave house doors unlocked and keys left in your rigs. But that is what it is.

    The real difference from the picture you posted and here in the US is that the Isarael teacher is on the defense of possible terrorist from their Arab neighbors. Here in the US we have to be on the defense from one of our own even including that teacher.

We have to address these problems. We can't just claim people like the shooter are evil and we can't do anything to prevent this sort of thing. These things will continue to happen over and over agian until we address the problems and come up with common sense solutions.
    The GOP are against health care for all and gun control. I would like to know why.
    What would you call it.....would like to say it is some disorder or mental disease. Look it is real simple. ANY individuals that Intentionally seeks to Kill Children are evil. Or they got possessed by something evil. We are talking lil kids ages 5 and 6 here. When one goes after the Humanity of Mankind. What else do you call it? Because that is exactly what took place. Killing the Future!

    The GOP isn't against healthcare for all. Nor due to ones Right's being protected over the issue of Arms. Nor are Republicans against logical, sensible, and Common sense Gun Laws.

    Naturally when a tragic incident like this occurs. People want to take some action, want to get to the bottom of what caused it and why. Most want to find a way to strike back. These are all normal responses.

    Right now we should be looking at how the media is going to play this out. Days of coverage. Horrifying pictures and all the littlest details all brought forth. We need to consider the trauma that is caused upon not only Adults. But that of children everywhere. Also that which is brought on by the Media. Is such good for society. Kids need to be helped with this. Shut the TV off during the day. Lil ones don't need to be seeing all of this. Older kids will be the ones that want to talk about such and this should be done but not with lil kids around.

    Moreover we do not want to project to kids out there that going to school isn't safe. Nor let our kids hear the politicians politicize these moments in time. Get their free Air Time when none of this has to do with any of them. IMO, yeah the President can say something if he wants to. The Governor of Conn. Their Reps and their Senators. The Mayor of that town. Those are the only politicians that should be saying anything. The rest of them all around the Country.....should do the Country a Major favor and STFU!


    They want to send Condolences.....send flowers, Card and or a Letter. But don't get on TV talking about how Something needs to be done Right now. (i.e. Bloomberg and couple of other Democratic Politicians.)
