There are no words.

I have no words of wisdom or scintillating analysis. Just pray for these people.

My God.

Reuters reports:

At least 27 people, including children, were killed on Friday when at least one shooter opened fire at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, CBS News reported, citing unnamed officials.

The shooter, the father of a student there, was also killed, CBS News reported. The principal and school psychologist were among the dead, CNN said.

There were unconfirmed reports of a second shooter after witnesses reported hearing dozens of shots fired.

Sandy Hook Elementary School teaches children from kindergarten through fourth grade - roughly ages 5 to 10.

Channel 3 news commentator said that she heard that many of those killed were in the kindergarten class(es).

==

Comments in the Breaking News thread indicate that a whole kindergarten class is missing.

It appears that the primary shooter was a parent.

Not to diminish the victims, but it is impossible to see something like this with commenting:

Ever notice how when the usual suspects start blathering on about gun control, some nut like this immediately comes out of the woodwork and starts killing people with a gun.

Amazing coincidence ain’t it?

This can’t be true - schools are gun free zones. As every Democrat knows someone who is planning on mayhem and murder will not carry a gun into a zone where guns are prohibited. Poor kids were sitting ducks.

Even your most crazed western bandit in the old west would never have thought of turning a gun on children.

Goes to show you how crazed society is in the “future”.

Did no one at that school have a firearm handy?

Exactly! If I am a raving lunatic who is at the core a coward where am I going to go to kill? Where no one is shooting back at me.

Prayers for the families of those lost, but liberalism and gun control have to take some responsibility for making these kids and their teachers totally helpless along with the savage murderer.

They wont make a big deal out of this.

This happened in Connecticut, so the usual “crazy Tea Party redneck in a retarded red state” angle doesn’t work.

20 yr old parent of a elementary school student? It’s possible but there has to be a lot more to this.

People don’t just “snap” and murder children.

The elites will medicalize the problems of the shooter(s), and the whole thing will fall under HIPAA secrecy.

If the circumstances can't be used to push the agenda of the left, the whole thing will be dumped into the memory hole, just like Loughner and Holmes have been.

If a connection can be made to Conservatism, even of the most tenuous nature, it'll be pushed wall-to-wall 24/7.

If so, then that person will be arrested if they're a school employee for bringing a gun to work. /sarc

You're absolutely right. Muslims set up their bases right in the schools.

This is soooo terrible. My heart goes out to everyone.

We'll know something soon.

It's possible that this WAS a terrorist plot.

We need names...and country of origin.

America has lost its way. When our Government is corrupt and has lost is foundation, Christian religion is being attacked, all leads to the loss of morals and depression.

The school was probably a "gun-free zone." I wouldn't be surprised if it had a "zero tolerance" policy toward guns that prohibited children from even pointing their fingers and yelling, "bang, bang."

I think you are correct. Just posted one of CBS’s links on this.

They are claiming the father of one of the kids did it.

If the shooter is white, he’ll be labeled Christian or conservative, an unfriendly loner who gave neighbors the creeps. If he’s any other color, but is former military, he’ll be billed as ex-soldier. If he’s any color other than white, and not military, it’ll be an incomprehensible tragedy, he’s the victim of mental illness, and his family will sob about what a wonderful young man he was.

shooter(s) probably didn't see it. If they'd just had a few more signs everything would have been OK.

I just listened to the presser and I thought I heard the LEO say that they were seeking info outside of the country. Did anyone else hear anything like that? It was after he said he had heard from Obama, who made the usual promises of help.

Yes. A pair of some flavor of nutters. It’s just so shocking. Only an immoral, unstable person would harm children.

I have told my wife that since the left has thrown God out of the public arena (USA has turned its back on God), and killed the God-given institution of Marriage between a man and a woman, the country has gone to hell ever since.

Another saying I have come up with is this:
"When the lawmakers and law enforcers become the biggest law breakers, and do so with impunity, then equal representation under the law is a lie. We are a 3rd world farce and you might as well get ready for the civil unrest that is engulfing the rest of the world..."

Look around you. Government officials are the biggest lawbreakers of the bunch and nothing happens to them, especially if their a demoncrat. LEO's can assault or kill someone, and unless it's on video they will skate. Look at George Zimmerman's case. He is being crucified for no better reason then he defended himself from someone bent on taking his life.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the country you knew and loved no longer exists. Prepare for the new reality...just use your imagination.

My wife and I are both retired teachers and strongly advocate the idea of arming someone inside public schools to try and prevent this kind of tragedy.Schools are advertised killing zones because a perp knows that no one will be able to stop them.

I’m wondering if the “second shooter” was exactly that—someone armed who took out the nut. And I’m suspected that the “dad” was a skitz—crazy.

Its just another symptom of our sick society. We didn’t start out this crazy; its been a long descent and this is where we’ve arrived. The answer is right in front of our eyes and worked for thousands of years. We have become a lost nation, ‘tho not to despair. Most of us have read the script; we know how the story ends. It’s our job to save as many as we can whether they like us or not. I know it’s hard to do sometimes...those fricken frackin smart mouthed know it all kids...lol

Obviously they already know who the killer is. 20 sounds a little young for a father. We'll see.

Why the delay in releasing his name and other pertinent data.

Of course they would never think of arming the school staff so they could protect the students in these situations or possibly deter such things from happening.
