another day, another shooting rampage... 28 dead including 20 kids in elementary school in conneticut

Multiple people have been killed in a shooting at an elementary school. The number of dead is unclear, but there are at least 20 shooting victims. Many of the shootings took place in a kindergarten classroom, sources told the Hartford Courant. The gunman is reported dead.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is still under way, says the man apparently had two guns.

The shooting was reported at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, in western Connecticut. State police say Newtown police called them at about 9:40 a.m. about the reports.

Newtown is in northern Fairfield County, about 45 miles southwest of Hartford and 80 miles northeast of New York City.

Eight-year-old Alexis Wasik, a third-grader at the school, said police were checking everybody inside the school before they were escorted to the firehouse.

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

One child leaving the school said that there was shattered glass everywhere. A police officer ran into the classroom and told them to run outside and keep going until the reach the firehouse.

Earlier reports of a second shooter are unconfirmed.

Associated Press, Reuters and the Hartford Courant contributed

To me this event is worse than 9/11, and it has to be treated that way, by media, by govt, and by the people of this country!!

and if you mention it within a month of the shooting, you are politicising and exploiting the dead. you are using the dead to take people's 2nd amendment rights away

discussions are not allowed until after it has left the public's psyche. then no one cares

exactly, people are already saying the media is gonna use this to take away their rights, HOW about the right of a 5 year old to go to school and not die

Pretty much.

The WH has already said today is not the day for gun control discussion. So they already don't care.

And before someone comes on this thread and says we don't need gun control and we're trying to keep you from your beloved piece of metal, all I want is you guys to do something to keep them out of the hands of the crazy motherfuckers.

Gunsellers don't give a fuck because they are making money but my first thought would be: wtf does this person need with semi and automatic weapons?

The President most wants to be admired by the majority of the populace. More than that, he doesn't have the guts to reintroduce the assault weapons ban.

^ the president??

Don't you know he has no power over this issue? Don't you know it is CONGRESS and mostly the republican part of congress who would rather see all these children be shot and maimed, traumatised for life than losing votes for taking away "gun rights".

How many more dead kids are needed? What a SHAME!

We really need to have a national discussion on gun control. This is ridiculous. The NRA has such a hold on Republicans, Congress with such lobbying power so they prevent this. But at some point, the WH, Congress need to step up to the plate and come up with comprehensive legislation that merges gun rights and gun control to protect citizens from being murdered.

Even if they do, I am sure most of the states will simply re-introduce "gun rights".

It's goddamned politics, because there will always be many millions of gun toiting IDIOTS against it.

Gotta agree with you on that,

anyone with a legal permit to own a gun, can snap

as someone said, earlier they believe the shooter is a father of one of the kids in school

there are the nutty mass shooters, but their are also the loving house wives or husbands or even children (who get a hold of a parents legal gun)
