I'd bet the shooters parents were wack job liberals who disciplined him by talking about it v a good old fashioned spanking when one was called for.

It sounds like it. Also read that another relative that lives in Newtown was found dead at their home.

Obamma hinted ( fairly obviously) that gun control will be addressed in the near future.

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.

Some of what’s being posted is speculation using FB and Twitter pages and isn’t the correct Ryan Lanza.

Administrators & some teachers are going to HAVE to be armed to slow down or prevent this stuff.

I thought that too but why not just delete the posts with the bad links?

This story is really getting twisted up.

They had it backwards. The YOUNGER 20 year old, Adam Lanza, was the shooter. The older 24 year old, Ryan Lanza, is in custody.

Obamugabe and his Democrat running dog lackeys don’t want anyone to raise questions about using the mental health care system to catch these guys in time.

The MSM was so busy winding up for an anti-gun spin that they tripped all over their own feet

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.

I suspect this young man has a severe mental illness.

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!

Agreed. But institutionalizing for severe, untreated, mental illness would reduce the incidents. IMHO.

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).
