Connecticut Elementary School Shooting

Recommended Posts

Speeding and going on a mass child killing spree aren't even close to being comparable.

It's the perfect time to talk about this, especially in MI with the lame duck GOP congress trying to pass legislature that will allow concealed weapons on public school property.

I assume this school was a "gun free" zone so we can see what good it did there..... so I'm not following your logic about the concealed weapons thing in MI?

Was this guy carrying a concealed weapon into the school in CT because he was allowed to by law?

What does one have to do with another?

And FTR I do not think this is the time or place to have this discussion....

Agree completely.

Yesterday would have been much, much, much better, but today is second best option.

Use the same security methods we use to get on a airplane. Put them in every doorway in every school in America. Make it mandatory. Along with that, put a police officer in every school as well.

Just read this *******'s twitter timeline. Displayed extremely dangerous tendencies all the way back to October. How someone could read this ****, and not get him help is beyond me. If he's putting it out there for the public to read, it's not like he's trying very hard to hide the fact that he's ill.

I recommend you start scouring all your friends' twitter feeds posthaste and call the authorities on anyone you're suspicious of.

This...

How many more of these have to happen? What happened is beyond words... but ultimately, how many more times do we have to start a thread about one of these horiffic mass killings before we start to question whether certain governmental policies could be used to lessen the number of these things from happening?

I see these threads as being one big loud announcement of "oh, this is unimaginable, beyond the pale, but there's nothing we can do about it".

Nice snark.

If any of my friends behaved like this guy and tweeted the way he did, I would've been in touch with his family.

Posthaste.

But hey, at least he was able to get three guns after talking for three months about suicide, hating his parents, and depression.

We can also use these scanners and armed policemen to detain and arrest kids for breaking school rules. After all, how else are we going to teach the kids how to live in a totalitarian police state? Gotta show and prove.

Maybe he didn't have any friends or twitter followers because he talked about suicide too much.

It is a strange fact of our social organization that if he had been talking about explosives or Jihad the NSA probably would have found him in 48 hrs.

If a teacher had a concealed weapon, maybe she could have stopped this guy before he destroyed two dozen families.

The media has to cover this, I know......but they are vultures.

Almost feels like some of them are rooting for the number to be higher.

Likewise, if there were stronger gun control laws, maybe this guy wouldn't have had the guns and been unable to destroy two dozen families.

If making the guns illegal would have prevented this, why don't they make gunning down schoolchildren illegal? Seems more direct.

Perhaps. However, gun control tends to keep only the law-abiding populace disarmed. I don't know where this ******* got his gun, or if it were obtained legally, or how motivated he actually was.

You might be right, you might be wrong. It seems too soon to politicize this tragedy. That perhaps should have been my response to Euphdude, but I tend to rely too strongly on clever subtlety, irony, and sarcasm.

Let's try it nationally and see what happens. I'm willing to give it a shot (ha! Get it?).

It's not too soon to politicize this tragedy. It's too late to politicize this tragedy. The people are already dead. Politicizing it yesterday may have saved them.

IF you think its too soon to politicize it, feel free to not politicize it. I am not compelled to agree w/ your assessment whatsoever.

Fine... since it offends you that you think Euph, pfife and myself are politicizing this tragedy, lets offer it in context to the Colorado shootings from this summer. Or perhaps in the context of the previous 5 or so of these we've had this year.

Maybe if we had stricter gun laws, nutjobs like James Holmes wouldn't have acquired a gun.

There, are you happy now?

Be honest, it wouldn't matter to you where he bought the gun. You think he has the right to own a gun. Nothing wrong with that opinion even though I disagree with it. But WHERE he got it really doesn't matter to you in the big picture, does it?
