    respect their person.
    Or respect the sensibilities of those who see no need to regulate these kinds of weapons?

    The fact that it was a Sheriff's gun, someone who is supposedly trained in handling weapons shows it doesn't matter who owns a gun they are always dangerous. They are nothing but nightmares waiting to happen for most of us. No wonder less and less of us want to roll those deadly dice.

    using these children in this way is not respectful.it's like prostituting them for purpose..no matter how righteous the goal is.

    hey i want all guns banned in america...i don't think you as a society is mature enough to allow for such a law as the 2nd amendment to exist.

    Wow, did they go out of their way to NOT say what kind of firearm. I doubt it was an AR15, they dare not say what it was.

    Here is another example of a gun death that NONE of proposed legislation would have prevented.

    from your conclusion , it's just another example of the madness brought about by the 2nd amendment...

    you people are not mature enough to have such a law.

    This thread is about photos, not guns. What kinds of cameras are you proposing we ban/register? Should there be an NICS before buying any kind camera, or don't you care if felons photograph your children? Don't you want to do anything about high-capacity paparazzi-style full-auto assault-cameras? Why do you need a fast shutter? Why do you need a 400x optical zoom? Why do you need a detachable high-capacity battery? You don't need 10gigs to photo a deer.

    Look at this paperazi-style pistol grip for a camera....


    Why do you need that in a school?

    I say no.Legally I do not think they should be stopped.But morally those media outlets should have the integrity to not publish those photos. I also think the media should have also have the integrity to not make an instant celeb out of every pathetic loser who shoots up a school.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
