A friend just posted the article on FB... Terrible. We need tighter control. There is no reason why this keeps happening every month.

Fucking bastard. This can happen anywhere. I heard about it a couple of hours ago but had no idea the toll until now.

Re: Connecticut Elementary School Shooting: 27 dead including 18 children

Twenty-six people were killed, including 18 children, when a gunman opened fire in a Connecticut elementary school Friday morning, a law enforcement official said.

The gunman, who is dead, was a 20-year-old from Connecticut, an official said. He was wearing all black and was carrying two 9mm handguns.

The incident sent crying children spilling into the school parking lot as frightened parents waited for word on their loved ones.

"I was in the gym and I heard a loud, like seven loud booms, and the gym teachers told us to go in the corner, so we all huddled," one student at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown told NBC Connecticut during its live broadcast. "And I kept hearing these booming noises. And we all … started crying.

"All the gym teachers told us to go into the office where no one could find us," she added. "So then a police officer came in and told us to run outside. So we did and we came in the firehouse and waited for our parents."

Two 9mm handguns were recovered from the scene, an official told WNBC's Jonathan Dienst.

Three people were taken to nearby Danbury Hospital, a spokeswoman told NBC Connecticut. She would not elaborate on the ages of the victims or their conditions.

One of those taken to the hospital was a teacher who had been shot in the foot, the Associated Press reported, citing a dispatcher at the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps.

The Newtown Bee reported that one child, apparently wounded, was carried from the scene by a police officer.

In a photo taken by the Bee, crying students could be seen being escorted from the school by police. They were taken to a nearby fire station where
their parents were picking them up.

A third-grader, Alexis Wasik, told the Hartford Courant that police checked students and staffers before they were escorted to the fire station.

"We had to walk with a partner," she said.

NBC Connecticut reported that the entire school district was in lockdown.

At Sandy Hook, police, ATF and FBI agents were going room to room searching the school.

President Obama was notified about the shooting and continues to receive updates, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.

"I think it's important on a day like today to view this as I know the president, as a father does, and I as a father and others who are parents certainly do," Carney said at his daily briefing. "Which is to feel enormous sympathy for families that are affected."

Newtown is about 45 miles southwest of Hartford and 60 miles northeast of New York City.

The K-4 school has about 600 students.

The shooter was a 20 year old with ties to the school, that supposedly lives in New Jersey, and may potentially have a child at the school.

There is a second suspect that has been taken in for questioning.

Re: Connecticut Elementary School Shooting: 27 dead including 18 children

If Foxnews employed people with a brain or conscience they´d probably feel pretty shitty about tearing into Bob Costas riht about now after another tragedy, but soon they´ll be telling us that the guy also was an NFL linebacker and could have strangled/stabbed 20 people to death. The argument for the 2nd amendment is such an outdated part of the constitution.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Hey just because he knocks up girls at age 13 doesn´t mean he doesn´t possess the maturity to own handguns.

Maybe this will change something, but I doubt it.

Re: Connecticut Elementary School Shooting: 27 dead including 18 children

Fucking horrible

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Connecticut Elementary School Shooting: 27 dead including 18 children

I work with someone whose son goes to school there. We are all so relieved he is OK but the amount of people killed, especially children, is just sickening and so scary. When will we wake up and change the laws?

Re: Connecticut Elementary School Shooting: 27 dead including 18 children

Exactly how many mass shootings do we need in a year before the US fixes its gun laws?
Cause apparently once a month is literally not enough.

Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan Any moment now, a gun nut will tweet me saying 'If all the kids in that school had been armed, the shooters would have been stopped...'

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
