Default 'Close to 20' dead in Connecticut school shooting

Quote:
Nearly 20 people died Friday in an elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.
At least 10 of the dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School were children, the source said. At a news conference Friday afternoon, state police Lt. Paul Vance would say only that there had been "several fatalities."
The school was secure, and the public was not in danger, Vance said.
"Why? Why?" one woman wailed as she walked up a wooded roadway leading from the school.
A parent who was inside the school at the time of the attack said she heard what sounded like at least 100 rounds being fired. She said she saw two school employees who had died.

This is terrible, been on the news all day and it's mostly all people I know have been talking about. I feel so bad for the families of the victims as well as the school faculty and children for witnessing this, and right around the holidays too. :/

Unforgivable and heart-wrenching. Most of them are innocent children.

From personal experience, adjusting to one single person getting shot was hard enough already, I can't imagine witnessing that many deaths and being able to function properly for quite a while.

Reports like this make me so upset and angry, especially since children were involved. Hey douche, if you're unhappy with your life and wish to end it, go for it, but DON'T take innocent people down with you.

Another thing I really dislike about cases like these are how the media just loves to make a big deal out of it just for ratings. All it really does is give the offenders attention, and can inspire other people to do the same thing.

Just sickening.

Feel bad for everyone in the area, the adults and kids in the school have to live with this for the rest of their lives and everyone living nearby won't feel safe anymore.

Seriously don't understand why US doesn't ban guns.
We don't have guns here and I have not once heard of any massacres in public places like schools.

If EVERYONE has a gun then EVERYONE has the ability to kill extremely easily psychopath or not, ****ing common sense as opposed to something like a knife where you have at least some chance of defending yourself unarmed.

Obviously there is the illegally obtained firearm but obviously is harder to obtain, hence why it's ILLEGALLY OBTAINED.


Similar news on a very close date: http://metro.co.uk/2012/12/14/man-wi...china-3316760/
No guns, no deaths in this case.

Pretty much all I can feel at this point. There are hundreds of cases where more people die everyday, however no one ever puts the spotlight on them as it isn't something that can get reactions from feelings.

I think banning guns may decrease shootings a bit, but they'll still remain prevalent. When has laws stopped crazy people from doing crazy things?

None of that is an excuse. They also claimed he was "highly intelligent".

I understand some people get gun permits so they can feel safe in their own home but why the hell would a mother have a .223 Bushmaster in the house. A Glock and a Sig Sauer are good enough.

Need tighter background checks and what not for gun permits. :x

So Adam Lanza's mother was found shot dead, and then he started this shooting. News report says he may have shot his own mother but did anyone ever thought that he was seeking revenge after having found out his mother died?

the fact remains that it has already been done, if there was such a thing as a time machine, then maybe, but there isn't so you're saying innocent people have to die just to let the world to know that someone is mentally unstable?

If he had gotten the appropriate care then that wouldn't have been the case.
