    Some kind of knives are prohibited, which are called "Controlled knives", carrying these knives is illeagal.

    The most severe crime in China is battles between gangsters with broadswords, Crime without gun will cause less death or wound.

    Well with this issue the guy that did the shooting. His mother was a teacher for that school. So he killed his mother and then went to the school and did this. Evidently he snapped. Or something else got a hold of him. As he does have a brother and that was his mother too.

    Although the police are saying that his girlfriend and one of her friends are missing in New Jersey too.

    But then we'd be a communist state with an authoritarian government which would shoot us and run us over with tanks. No thanks. You can keep it.

    Actually, we already ARE a state with an authoritarian government which can shoot us and run us over with tanks.

    I'm so sorry and heartbroken over this. This just sucks. If there is any way we can help and console the families of these victims, I think we should. The hard part about living is knowing that innocent can be taken at any moment.

    I am afraid it will be far worse than that before the dawn breaks again on our country. Far Far worse.

    This is the missing link in the entire process but because a well done behavioral stress test takes so long to do the NRA will never ever go for it they want guns in the hands of people as soon as possible. Damn logic or reason.

    Yes I know about the gun forum. And I agree that some decorum is fundamental, but my question was an honest one and I restate it.

    NEWTOWN, CT - The Sandy Hook school principal and another staffer were killed after lunging at a gunman who forced his way inside to begin a deadly shooting spree, the regional school superintendent said Saturday.

    The principal, Dawn Hochsprung, 47, and school psychologist Mary Sherlach, 56, died along with 4 other adults and 20 children in the second deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. The alleged shooter, 20-year old Adam Lanza, was found dead at the scene, and his mother, Nancy Lanza, was discovered dead at their home.

    Newtown school superintendent Janet Robinson told reporters that the two educators and other staff members had put themselves in harms way to protect children once it became clear the school was under siege.

    "The teachers were really, really focused on saving their students," Robinson said.....snip~

    Police find "good evidence" on motive for Connecticut school massacre

    NEWTOWN, Connecticut (Reuters) - Investigators assembled "some very good evidence" to explain what drove a 20-year-old gunman to slaughter 20 children and six adults at an elementary school, police said on Saturday, a day after one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history shattered a small Connecticut town.

    The attacker, identified by law enforcement sources as Adam Lanza, opened fire on Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, which teaches children aged 5 to 10. The shooter killed 26 people - including first-graders, who would be about 6 years old - before turning the gun on himself.

    "Our investigators at the crime scene ... did produce some very good evidence in this investigation that our investigators will be able to use in, hopefully, painting the complete picture as to how - and more importantly why - this occurred," Connecticut State Police Lieutenant Paul Vance told a news conference.

    "This recovery is going to be not a sprint but a marathon. It's going to be a long process," said U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.

    Vance, the police spokesman, declined to describe the evidence gathered about the shooter's motives but did say the gunman forced his way into the school.

    The woman found dead at the secondary crime scene was related to the shooter, a police news release said. Many media outlets have reported she was the shooter's mother, Nancy Lanza.

    Nancy Lanza legally owned a Sig Sauer and a Glock, both handguns of models commonly used by police, and a military-style Bushmaster .223 M4 carbine, according to law enforcement officials who also believe Adam Lanza used at least some of those weapons.

    Nancy Lanza was an avid gun collector who once showed him a "really nice, high-end rifle" that she had purchased, said Dan Holmes, owner of a landscaping business who recently decorated her yard with Christmas garlands and lights. "She said she would often go target shooting with her kids."

    Newtown was ranked the fifth safest city in America by the website NeighborhoodScout.com based on 2011 crime statistics.....snip~

    My heart goes out to the parents and families of the victims.

    I can only begin to imagine the living hell these 20 parents are experiencing.

    I, for one, believe we must do better. I can not accept the notion that 'nothing could have been done to prevent this' or that these horrifically tragic mass murders are somehow the price we pay in the United State for our freedoms. We think of ourselves this compassionate country, and we proud of our advances in science and technology; then how is it that we can not prevent these acts of mass violence by disturbed individuals. How is it that we can not solve this problem and do a better job of protecting innocent lives?
