December 14th, 2012 10:51 am Stan I said Bob Costus was right. And to hell with O’Reilly who I quoted as saying “More guns would have prevented the Colorado massacre”. Bill and his type want to arm 5 years old? Despicable mentality of the gun lovers. December 14th, 2012 11:26 am KauaiRobert Why??? December 14th, 2012 2:44 pm Steve the cat rescuer Horrible. Mental illness is very real, but I cannot imagine what would drive someone to do this. December 14th, 2012 3:08 pm K.G. My thoughts & prayers go out to the all involved in this tragedy…so sad. December 14th, 2012 6:42 pm Ben made me want to drive right over to my daughter’s school and pull her out of class. this grown man cried today.

Schools need more protection they are too vulnerable. December 14th, 2012 10:01 pm b4huxley Once again the horrific under belly of the American impulse driven culture rears its ugly head. So many things wrong happened that day, the United states needs to send a message about these type of incidents in the future. I’m not asking for gun regulation, I want school staff to be better prepared for these types of scenarios, I would rather allow the security guards in schools to be able to carry guns than make schools gun free zones and set them up as red flags for the criminally insane. This attack also shows that the city of Newton was completely unprepared for a mass shooting incident, in Portland Oregon a gunman attacked a mall with 10,000 people in it, he killed 3 people police forces arrived within two minutes and stopped him in his tracks. That should happen every time someone attempts to do this. There is a rabid sickness to someone that would attempt to do this, they have given up living and only want to destroy as many people as they can before they die, these people are angry at the world, to stop them a clear message has to be sent that we won’t allow them to leave a sick legacy in their self destructive murder suicide rampages. This behavior of school shootings has become a kind of epidemic in the United states. Cities should have quarterly drills with police and schools to prepare for these incidents, train the security guards to know the signs and respond, train the teachers how to keep our children and grandchildren safe. Send the message to them, if you become rabid we will kill you before you hurt anyone like the dog you are, there will be no sordid legacy of death and destruction in your wake only the death of an insane rabid criminal. December 16th, 2012 1:40 am Stan Armed guards at elementary schools? Because of the damn gun lobby we have them in High Schools. The gun lover and the gun lobby are cancers on this country. “Only criminals will have guns,etc”? It was a non criminal single woman and her gun love that caused the massacre. Her slight build son couldn’t have done what he did without the “right to own guns”. There are NO responsible gun owners. They don’t exist. December 16th, 2012 12:45 pm b4huxley Thats silly ranchers, and farmers usually own guns to protect their livestock from predators. People that live in Alaska have to own guns in some places due to bears, there are definately responsible gun owners, just because the world you are accustomed to has killed off every one of mans natural predators doesn’t mean there aren’t people that live in areas that have animals that will kill and eat them and their families unless they defend them. Guns are necessary in some places because of this.
