School shooting in CT.

I have not read any posts in this thread. I am sure some will make me even more angry.

This horrific event is so incredibly sad...but I feel way to angry to cry yet. As I said in another post, I understand 9/11 more than I understand this.

​I blame the NRA. I blame the morons who yell about the 2nd amendment. That was written in different times, when "arms" were necessary for reasons that do not exist today. Slavery was legal then, women could not vote. Weapons have changed....to defend yourself from an enemy attack...one needs million dollar weapons. The stuff the NRA defends as a right is not only absurd....it is immoral.

It is the greed of those making money off these weapons that have killed our children today. (They wave the flag to get the support of the simple minded...to go along with the support of the criminals.)

Anyone in the category above, the blood of these children is on your hands and your soul. You oppose gun control....you helped kill them, along with many others every day.

I am mad. Very mad. I cannot even imagine how the parents of the deceased children feel. There cannot be anything close to this kind of pain.

We as a country have to do something to change this. We are not yet a civilized society.

My heart to those families who lost a loved one today. My heart also goes out to all the children in that school. Their lives have been forever changed.

per a 2012 study by the pew research center 66.3% of US prison inmates identify as christians:

I'M JUST SAYIN' GUYS

I wonder what percentage of them is in there for a drug related offense - seems like I read that 50 percent of the general prison population is.

My God doesnt recognise drug laws as sins or law.

Being on complete lock down in Norris during the VT shootings was very gut-wrenching and hard to comprehend.

Talking heads in the media need to understand that almost everyone on campus on that day and the days to follow wanted you out of there to allow us to understand what had just happened.

Nobody wanted you then. Nobody wants you in Newtown now.

I usually like her too but someone has to blame the guns. Let's not even blame her for blaming the guns. Let's let everyone be blameless.... Ahem now back to reality. This was the act of one kid. He would have done it one way or the other.

Not sure what you meant...and if you agree with me or disagree.

Yes, I have always had it in me. I am very passionate about victims. Children are off the charts for me.

No one can convince me that those soulless morons who yell the right to own automatic/assault weapons trumps a child's right not to be killed....or anyone's right for that matter.

What the hell does anyone need an assault weapon for?

Blaming guns: knee jerk reaction that doesn't make any sense

Blaming vidya games: rational and well thought out reaction
