AP via Bos Herald
A law enforcement official says the suspect in the Connecticut school shootings is 24-year-old Ryan Lanza and that his younger brother is being held for questioning as a possible second shooter. The law enforcement official says the boys’ mother, Nancy Lanza, works at the school as a teacher. The official also said Ryan Lanza’s girlfriend and another friend are missing in New Jersey. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said the suspect is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the source was not authorized to speak on the record about the developing criminal investigation.

Let’s just arrest EVERYONE named Ryan Lonza in the Northeast.

We can have Homeland Security, TSA and CNN sort it all out later. (/s)

CT... strict gun and drug laws don’t prevent their spread in the streets indeed... funny it always is some priviledged kid doing this kind of crap... the type getting their hands easily on stuff illegally through corrupt bureaucrates.

This reads like loughner, some kid whose mother is associated with a school or government position...

Cops these days do not go after some dangerous people who are the special protected species of our society. GAyish people do not attract their attention in the deed of bad things, though they always are the rabble rousers in “parties gone wild” on TV. The routine checks don’t follow those traces. It looks too Obamaish and cute to be true that it would destroy the country to compromise with such death culture.

I could thus easily think that this is to promote a “gun is responsible and not me” type culture out there, a leftist psychiatrist’s gallore.

We already know islam has special protections, and the unions have islamic cops harrassing christians in many places. The culture of irresponsability is on. Some could play the “I too am special in God game” and see where that leads to. Reverse infiltrate them with their demons and friends possessing them. It’s a kill priviledge culture that is being foisted, not unlike Nazism foisting a kill the jew priviledged culture.

Bottom line of this story is: They really expect us and gun owners to walk in the sidewalk gutter of social shame in America.

It’s a ploy by certain elites to control and enslave and harass legal citizens to submission and submissiveness... very vicious stuff of conformists and antisemites amongst others. Their kids are always special.

The keys is they reward laziness and submission. The gun buy back is key in this.

The younger brother was at the school and ran into the woods. It was not a random arrest.

I suspect this young man has a severe mental illness. The mental health gurus decided about 20 years ago that institutionalizing sufferers of mental illness is not a solution.

Young men,in this age group, suffer most. They don’t like the meds because the meds result in a numbness that is uncomfortable. So they don’t take them. What they think is real to them and they act on it.

Wish someone would study the correlation between these mass murders and mental health treatment.

It isn’t firearms. It is untreated mental health problems.

If you can be in an institution for weeks for a broken hip, why doesn’t it stand to reason that institutionalization for severe mental health problem an option?

Honestly...can that man(Obama) not make a statement without dragging himself into the situation. This is not the time for him to bring up he is a parent since everyone in the world knows he is one. The total focus should be on the families that lost loved ones.

He may as well have said it out loud when he spoke rather than saying “issues need to be addressed regardless of politics” which we all know means gun control. Watch for EO’s or presidential directives to follow. Percentage of possibility of this happening is tiny except for the parents from today. Hopefully the Lord will provide them with some comfort as hard as it will be.

Some “reporter” announced that a “high calibre .223” may have been used. Do these clowns know anything? I think not.

That will be a tough one, since the murderer/s apparently did not use anything that can be described as an "assault weapon" and because the murderer/s apparently comes from Connecticut and lives in New Jersey - two states with extremely tight existing gun control laws.

Absolutely! Where I live there is a state hospital nearby and people are released into the community from there. Granted most are fine, but there are the .0001% who are not yet the case workers continue to determine they are not a problem until they do something.

In the case in Connecticut it was a mass shooting, around here it is usually property crimes or minor assaults. This is a rather rural area so most folks here are armed (even teachers).

Despite what many believe, even the mentally ill can and do plan these things where they can expect the least resistance. A “no gun zone” school is an excellent place to complete a mass killing.

We need to reexamine the treatment of the mentally ill. Loughner and the Movie theater shooters were quite obviously ill yet there is no quick method to get them under control until AFTER they have done something.

Gun control won’t stop this stuff. Arming people charged with the care of our children would go a long way. An armed principal at that school could have quickly ended the episode.

And we really need to come to grips with the idea that there ARE, in our society, deranged persons who need to be locked away BEFORE they are allowed to perform these hideous acts.

This is not an issue of treating mental state! "Mental illness" or not -- such an individual needed to be stopped immediately!

Too bad somebody there was not equipped to stop him.

The average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 14.3
The average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by a civilian is 2.3.

This preparation is not to be left up to the police, in view of today's social climate! No gun-free zones!

Unfortunately with the current regime in place that opens up another can of worms. The Soviets loved to declare dissidents mentally ill and send them off “for treatment” (i.e., imprisonment and forcible medication usually ending in nobody ever hearing from that individual again).

So what would you do? Just lock everyone up that someone accuses of having mental illness. Isn’t that how Hitler and Stalin were successful?

Evil is the only explanation. I’m not a particularly religious man, but there is no legitimate psychological explanation for this.

...probably because the news media morons are already fingering someone and may NOT have the right person or name. Better to wait until everyone is sure, and NOT shoot from the hip so to speak.

There are multiple people with the same names and identities can be stolen.

Youger brother found his father dead, went to Mom’s workplace to stop his older brother’s murderous spree. This might explain his presence at the scene?
I can’t see him being involved in the killing, IMHO.

You don’t understand. It is almost impossible to institutionalize someone who is violent. Even with a doctors recommendation. Liberals got courts and social workers involved. Then they emptied most mental hospitals in the late 70’s early 80’s. Thank Jimmuh Cahtah.

Representative Frye, who has twin nieces and a nephew at the school, just related to Fox how he was at the school's Holiday Concert. Only Christmas, Christ, is the answer, the only comfort in a world where the Evil One is allowed to seek the ruin of souls, the Father of Lies who traffics in death. Holday observances offer nothing to anybody - only fleeting, worldly, non-lasting emotion.
