Mass Shooting in Connecticut-THREAD NAME CHANGE

This will certainly light a fire under the gun control crowd! :banghead:
The Hartford Courant confirmed just after 11 a.m. that one student has been killed following an incident that began earlier in the morning, citing reports from authorities on the scene.


Moments earlier, authorities confirmed that a suspected gunman was also dead while at least three others were transported to a nearby hospital

Prayers and best wishes to the victims.

To those who are saying "Something should be done!", the Gun-Free School Zones law was enacted in 1990.

And unless the shooter was licensed to carry, it can't be blamed on CHL holders.

In short, it's a people problem, not a gun problem.

Good point.

Unfortunately, this looks to be one of those events that is first reported as 1 death but grows over the next few days.

Rumor has it that was a recently-fired employee, which is the root cause again and again.

Perhaps instead of blanket gun bans, schools and businesses should watch more closely for fired employees coming back a short time later.

Indeed, prayers for the victims and families here.

It appears that handguns were used in this incident. I guess they will now be considered assault weapons.

The latest report is that the shooter was one of the children's father, so I'm speculating a very ugly custody "snatch" or selfishly taking himself and the child out.

Domestic "bliss" kills far more than guns ever will.

something should be done!

these darn gun free zones need to go. my wife is a teacher and it makes me sick to see this stuff happening and all the teachers are told to do is to block themselves in there room and be a freaking target.. sick..

our schools need gun toting personnel to make these idiots think twice before pulling these massacres on our little children.. a freaking kindergarden class for chirst sakes :confused5

A tweet I just read

Jake Scofield ‏@jake_scofield

We had multiple shootings at Univ Of Arizona. Our answer? Legalized all students & faculty to conceal carry firearms. No more shootings.

total count for now is at 27, in which 18 were 5-10 year olds. Absolutely terrible. Those are the ages of my children. It will not stop until potential victims are allowed to be armed citizens.
