    Can you back this up with any facts ? Are were you thinking we were China, or some such nonsense ? Not saying we are not headed there, thanks to the idiot Obama voters. Am saying that we are not there yet, and I got live warm fingers to prove it

    This thread is about the 26 people killed in Newton. Not how you feel about gun control. I think it's telling that you, as well as the anti-gun nuts are more concerned about the guns used then the children that a$$hole killed.

    The biggest issue here should be how the shooter got access to the children. He should have never been in the school to begin with. Taking away guns, or giving people more guns is less important than examining the breakdown in security.

    It was reported he broke into the school by smashing a window. It's kind of hard to protect children from someone willing to go that far unless you want to lock the kids up in a prison with bars over the windows and an electrified perimeter.

    So you condescendingly preach that the mere mention of gun control is a poor refection on the memory of these young children, yet 2 minutes later, you go on about how security is too lax and need to be addressed.

    Talk about owning yourself.

    But I digress. This morning, one of the parents of one of the children that was brutally murdered by gunshot, through tears, talked about the need for Americans to take action and do something to prevent anther shooting tragedy. Are you prepared to call him a nut? Uncaring? Insincere?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Emerging from yesterday are the heroics of the teachers and staff to try and protect the children.

    I know everyone is complaining about the gun-haters here but I am just glad the teacher-haters aren't posting.

    Well, until we find a way to address the moral decay that seems to be gripping a large segment of our populace, I don't think any law will prevent this sort of thing. If people bent on breaking the law can get drugs, they can get guns. But if we want to "do something" that might actually stop someone bent on committing an act like this, we can start by chucking the concept of "gun free zones" in which the only people with guns are the crazies and giving teachers and administrators the option to arm themselves after they've received thorough professional training. Even with cops coming in with guns blazing, by the time they arrive people will be dead. As long as schools are easy pickings, you can bet your sweet bippy they'll continue to get picked by people who are bent on making a statement before they check out.

    But more significantly. He was a Goth. Goths which only exist because of a computer fraternity. He apparently was a fan of the Columbine shooters. Posted pics of their grisly death forms. Only via computer. He was active in twisted chat forums. Computers again.

    I am quite familiar with Aspergers, as one of my children has a form of it. Fortunately, not the type that can include a proneness to violent outbursts, which I believe afflicts about 25% of cases. Unfortunately, such as Curt Schilling has a son who is in that group, and it makes a bad situation more difficult. I have no idea if the shooter here had such outbursts prior to this. I am still appalled that the mother not only had the guns, but also took the boy to the range on occasion. This boy who tended towards the goth crowd, was clearly an outcast and misfit, even if not a conscious choice. The mother herself was apparently of the survivalist mentality, stockpiling food, and believing in the coming collapse of society. She had to be feeding this crap to the kid.

    Then, by all indications, this kid planned this for at least a few days. And the mother apparently did not sense anything, and did not adequately secure her weapons.
