Multiple people are dead after a shooting this morning at a Connecticut elementary school, according to a report.

According to a witness report, the school's principal and another staffer were killed while the vice principal was shot in the leg afte a gunman opened fire in a hallway.

A witness said gunshots were heard in the hallway during a meeting and that "100 rounds" must have been fired, according to CNN. After the shots were fired, three people ran into the hallway but only the vice principal crawled back.

Cops responded to reports of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary just after 9:40 a.m., and said the gunman was in the school's main office, according to reports.

It now looks like the shooter targeted the kindergarten class and the principal and other adults were killed when they arrived at the kindergarten classroom that was under attack.

"prayers for the families and children.

No justification for this. NONE. These were babies"

Incomprehensible. Tremendous sadness and anger.

There is no way in Hell I am going to live in this nut infested country without my gun.

Ditto that!

Being armed today is more important now then ever.

Not sure who is more of a threat, the Government or the nuts.

Either way, FMCDH!

Kindergarten children are babies

They are only about 38-40 inches tall. They must have been terrified as they were slaughtered systematically. Certainly some teachers and school staff died as heroes today. Last similar atrocity I remember was Dunblane in Scotland where the butcher used a knife on an entire kindergarten class

Schools have been on lock down for some years and the doors are locked so no one can get in without permission, usually parents are buzzed in by the front office.

Fie on all those who KNEW this man was a nutjob and did nothing or had protection from the legal system. Something must be done about the murderously insane, not sure what though

Reports say the shooter was the father of a student there. Looks more like another nut who should not have been allowed on the street.

Been in a holding pattern ever since this started. Want to hear from the police. The initial news reports are almost always wrong...and so I pray that it wasn’t as bad as they are saying...and if it was, prayers for the families involved is all I can offer right now with no verified information.

Makes sense. I have yet to hear a description of the perp. Probably because it’s too embarrassing to progressive sensibilities.

I thought gun control was having a good sight picture and knowing where your shots went.

In CO that is about right, John Chickenlooper aside.

A pattern is emerging:

Only looney liberals do the shooting, and it is mostly in looney leftie places that these shootings happen.

And since schools have no guns available, the perps feel empowered to shoot them up

Have they ID’d the gunman as a Tea Party conservative yet? Or since his last name might be Muslim they’re going to say it was a random attack, nothing to do with terrorism?

Why? In almost every one of these incidents, the perp is a white male. There are exceptions (VA Tech and Ft. Hood), but sad to say, its mostly white guys.

My take on it? What, do I know more about it than you do?

There are 18 children dead...until we know why and at whose hand all that should be discussed is prayer and sympathy.

It amazes me that people have to be told this.

Yeah ... you can cover and run with numbers and death ... but exact description requires time and thought.

They're scrambling to find the 'right' words.

ESPECIALLY if it turns out to be a 'sensative' subject.

They both are. One is using the other, and at the same time society is slowly collapsing upon itself, but that rate is steadily increasing.

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I DO want to know the identities of the perpetrators and what their connections are. The media had better NOT try to conceal any Muslim connections if there are any.

And to think: not one of the good guys had a gun.

Every teacher should open carry, and be required to go to the shooting range every month. If they can't hit the target, they should not be allowed in the classroom. If they can't use a handgun, give them a shotgun. If they can't use a gun, they can't protect their children.

It is sickening that the left will blame the gun, but not support the gun that would prevent this Satanic act.

SOMEone is NOT to be pitied and it is equally logical to surmize whom might be the reason for the deaths.

WE all have read here in FR numerous reports of muslim (f'rinstance) honor killings and we accept that as a fact and sick, but never criticize it as making it political to learn of that "honor killing"

Conservative America is on our toes since Nov 6, and there's a whole lott'a distrust to share.

NOTHING is going to make this an easy swallow.

The kick back from this is going to be biblical. I’m placing my order for my Saiga ammo tonight as soon as I get home. I’ll get some more clips while I’m at it. This is really going to get bad now. My heart goes out to the kids and the parents.

That said, it’s time to arm the teachers. Enough is enough.

Profanity has it’s Harvest. Abortion is a seed: This is the Harvest. G-d is NOT mocked. Whatsoever you sow that shall you reap. What people have forgotten is that you cannot break or injure the Torah. It will break you. It is man who must submit to the Law of G-d. Period. Deuteronomy 30:19 says it so well: “This day I call Heaven and Earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; Choose Life, so that you and your CHILDREN may LIVE.

Dunblane involved gun(s), not a knife. In fact, it was the incident that (largely) led to the near-complete handgun ban in the UK.
